Antagonistic Subjectivations: Frantz Fanon and Postcolonial Critique
Sandro Luce (University of Salerno)

Fanon's reflections concerning identity construction rise awkward questions and reveal a contrast with a universalistic approach. His interdisciplinary method - between phenomenology, Marxism and psychiatry - is extremely fruitful for calling into question some categories of modern tradition, showing its profound inadequacy in the colonial context.
These analyses, although historically contextualized, have a deep impact on the present time, marked by racist phenomena and new essentialist constructions.
