IAIN CHAMBERS
THE MEDITERRANEAN: A POSTCOLONIAL SEA
March 4, 2010 | Barcelona
______________________________________________________________________

As a part of its Open Talks the Intermittent University organized a conversation with distinguished theoretician Iain Chambers. In his own words: “There is the Mediterranean, the sea itself, not so much as a frontier or barrier between the north and the south, or the east and the west, but rather as an intricate site of encounters and currents, involving the movement of peoples, histories, and cultures, that underlines the continual sense of historical transformation and cultural translation that makes it a site of continual transit. We can return to that history, not so much with the idea of getting the historical record straight, as playing it again in order to listen to its other, repressed, side”.
