Edinburgh Speaker & World Philosophies series seminar
Speaker: Norman Ajari (University of Edinburgh)
Title: Fanon and Black Male Studies
Abstract: This talk endeavors to provide an account of Caribbean psychiatrist and political theorist Frantz Fanon’s theorizing of colonized males facing white desire. Doing so, it aims at showing both how his writings paved the way to the emerging field of contemporary Black male studies, and how psychoanalytical, philosophical, and political insights he offers are still apt to enrich our understanding of racialized men and boys today.
