The Urge to Recall Edward W. Said’s Thought Today

“During the political revolts and upheavals in several Arab countries, revolutionaries turned his concepts into their slogans, and his words have emerged as graffiti writings on the walls of Tunisian streets- in-revolt. In so doing, revolutionaries not only thwarted a regime but also the possibility of Said’s thought being treated as a “status quo,” as a frozen understanding and as institutionalised interpretations, through which he became associated with a specific, fixed set of concepts, as enacted by the authority of academia and certain intellectual discussions.”
