Session 227: Colonising Egypt by Timothy Mitchell
For this session, David Nyffenegger has selected excerpts from Colonising Egypt by Timothy Mitchell (University of California Press, 1991).
“Extending deconstructive theory to historical and political analysis, Timothy Mitchell examines the peculiarity of Western conceptions of order and truth through a re-reading of Europe’s colonial encounter with nineteenth-century Egypt.” -Book cover
