Fighting Words

Fighting Words

Can a book change the world? If books were integral to the creation of the imperial global order, what role have they played in resisting that order throughout the twentieth century? To what extent have theories and movements of anti-imperial and anticolonial resistance across the planet been shaped by books as they are read across the world?

Panel members who contributed to the monograph Fighting Words will respond to these questions.
