(p.31) One: Foucault, Fanon, Intellectuals, Revolutions
The Postcolonial Contemporary

Anthony C. Alessandrini

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines Michel Foucault’s writings on Iran, alongside several texts by Frantz Fanon, in order to bring out certain aspects of their respective approaches to ongoing revolutions. It argues that such approaches are necessary for postcolonial studies to do justice to the revolutions of our time, such as the still-unfolding struggles of the Arab Spring.

Keywords:   Arab Spring, Foucault, Fanon, Intellectuals, Iran, Revolutions
