The humanities now (and, if one looks, thanks to Edward Said, the question of settler colonialism in thinking them): Rosi Braidotti, Paul Gilroy (eds), Conflicting Humanities, Bloomsbury, 2016
Description: How might we reinvent the humanities? This is the question at the heart of this provocative volume. It is a difficult mission and definitely one which needs to be addressed with increasing urgency. There is no better cast to confront and problematize this question than the contributors to Conflicting Humanities. They are world-renowned thinkers who can tackle the problem as researchers and teachers but also as prominent public intellectuals.
