Summary

This book examines the social and cultural aspects of the politics of postcolonialism. Using North Africa as a paradigmatic example, the author pursues the politics of postcolonial memory by tracing its representations in literary, philosophical, political, and photographic narratives.Employing literary narratives and strategies allows for a glimpse into the performances and the intricate negotiations that go into key concepts and practices that disciplinary IR has taken as given, such as: state, agency, and actor(s). More importantly, it allows for a very different understanding of the 'political', disavowing the notion that 'international politics' takes place only in the realm of 'inter-state relations.' Instead, the book examines the 'political' as performed in its everyday-ness. By adopting a postcolonial perspective, a perspective quite marginal in International Relations, it investigates a different international relations of migration.A postcolonial standpoint is instrumental in understanding the relations between class, gender, and race, which interrogate and reflect more generally on the shared (post)colonial violence and on the politics of mediating violence.
