Spectral Inheritance: Decolonial Response-ability to the Plural Past

by Ruben Hordijk, Linköping University

Since the death of George Floyd in May last year and the mass mobilisation of Black Lives Matter uprisings across the globe, decolonisation has become ubiquitous in mainstream politics. Drawing on scholarship that understands the timeline as an imperial technology which colonises the future, here Ruben Hordijk argues that we must resist the closure of the past and entirely re-think time itself, if we are to truly resist the forces of (neo)colonialism and imperialism today.

On the Impossibility of Left Populism

by Mudar Kassis, Birzeit University

In South America, left-wing populism has been a feature of political life for decades. In Europe, populism emerged as a right-wing phenomena; but in recent years the arguments for a Left Populism have garnered greater traction. Writing in Palestine, Mudar Kassis argues that populism inherently deceives those it claims to represent. Instead we must tear off the facade and organise against our true enemy.
