Subjects of Modernity: Time-space, disciplines, margins

Front Cover
African Sun Media, Oct 4, 2017 - Philosophy - 190 pages

?Dube ranges widely and globally - from histories of empires and genealogies of disciplines to recent Dalit artwork from India - to explore and carefully delineate a tension he regards as fundamental to the formation of the modern: the modern subject?s inevitable entanglement with those subject to modernity. A tour de force, this book offers a critical, timely and powerful sequel to postcolonial and subaltern studies.? ? Dipesh Chakrabarty, University of Chicago
