This week we will be discussing the biography and thought of Frantz Fanon, whose essay “Algeria Unveiled” we have read.
In case you want to see a preview of some of what he’ll talk about in class, you can watch this video of a lecture Achille Mbembe delivered on Fanon at Harvard in 2010.
If you are interested in hearing the voice of Frantz Fanon, the Institut National de l’Audiovisuel has a recording of a conference he gave on the theme of “Racism and Culture.” It’s a fascinating lecture.
What are your reactions to Fanon’s interventions? What other material can you find about his life, his thought, and his influence?
