  • Buell Hall, East Gallery, Columbia University (map)

A documentary on Frantz Fanon, Frantz Fanon: His Life, His Struggle, His Work, (Cheikh Djemai, 2001, 52 min.) will be shown on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Buell Hall, East Gallery. 

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of Frantz Fanon's death, an international group of scholars addresses the diverse sources, trajectories and reinscriptions of his thought. Participants will consider Fanon's biographical and intellectual migration between the French Caribbean and North Africa, and between the theory of race and the project of anticolonial nationalism, and discuss his legacy across continents and across disciplines.
