Critical Readings - Franz Fanon: The Wretched of the Earth - Spontaneity: Its Strength and Weakness (2)
This time we're reading the second chapter of the "Wretched of the Earth", "Spontaneity: Its Strength and Weakness" (or, in some translations, " Grandeur and Weakness of Spontaneity") and Homi K. Bhabha's new foreword for the book from 2004, which criticises Sartre's preface and places Fanon's work and impact in a more contemporary context. Bhabha's foreword can be found in this edition: http://home.ku.edu.tr/~mbaker/CSHS503/FrantzFanon.pdf
Please read the texts if you want to participate actively at the discussion.
