Week 3 – “Post-colonial Critical Theories” Slemon

October 11, 2007

I liked at the end the way Slemon phrased the forward action of post-colonial theory as attempting to know each other’s stories and share them in a way that crosses cultural boundaries. Stories, I am learning, are essential to knowing and expressing (and preserving) who we are…and maybe more importantly who we’ve been. When we can share our stories, we can know each other in a relational way that enables us to transcend annoying presuppositions and prejudices and find common ground.
