|Title||What is settler colonialism? An anthropological meditation on Frantz Fanon's "concerning violence"|
|Journal||History and Anthropology|
|Abstract||There has been a tendency in anthropology to read Frantz Fanon referentially, reflectively, & phenomenologically. As a consequence, his analyses have been regarded as reductive & simplistic. Promoted here is a relational, reflexive, & historical reading of his essay, 'Concerning Violence,' that forms the basis for an alternative deconstructive & political critique to current anthropological studies of colonial discourses reliant on epistemologically based critiques. The intent is to consider some of the effects generated by the use of unexamined concepts & typologies. In particular, this deconstructive & political critique, in significant measure made possible by Fanon's oeuvre, is applied to the concept of 'settler colonialism' as used in the discipline over the last three decades via texts as diverse as those of Leo Kuper, David Prochaska, & Patrick Wolfe. 57 References.
