Two colonial theories in relation. A Fanonian genealogy

Alejandro De Oto


This essay explores postcolonial itineraries in relation to decolonial thinking and focuses on the conceptual and political articulation that Frantz Fanon’s work represents for both fields. Two main dimensions are at stake here: first, the discussion on modernity from the plot of coloniality, and, second, the political dimension that runs across postcolonial and decolonial readings.


Keywords: Modernity, Postcolonial, Decolonial, Fanon.
