interesting rebuttal to said's orientalism
posted to lemmy
Look, I'll be real with you: I basically have a high school level formal history education so I try not to express opinions too loudly about questions of historiography even though I find them interesting. Particularly, I find a lot of materialist historiography really compelling. Even when it's boring it's hard to argue against.
This is pushing back on alleged mushiness in Said's account of cause and consequence of orientalism and colonialism. Pretty cool stuff.
