Just wanted to share this sentence from some reading for school:
“We need a critique of Western assumptions about knowing the colonized Other, in order to uncover their orientalist self-aggrandizing structure, but without relying on an unproblematic ‘authentic’ alternative from the colonized, whose interpretive horizon is similarly historically dynamic and is undoubtably distorted by colonialism as well.
What?! Who taught these people how to write?!
This is why blog posts are sparse during school. Any free time I have is spent trying to revive my brain, which is distinctly mushy right now.
