In this talk, Davis will discuss documents from Edward Said’s archive housed at Columbia University’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Davis will focus on the varying relationships between Marxism and post-colonial theory. He will also consider patterns wherein academic institutions in the Global North archive collections from or about the Global South. Most of all, Davis reflects on Said's legacy across political science, global and international studies, and philosophy today.
