Abstract

Political theorists often turn to history to provide context for texts and their production. In this essay, I argue that history can be used to help interrupt our preconceived notions about the way the world works and create a more dynamic form of theorizing about the present. Frantz Fanon’s theory of decolonization provides an example of how individual and collective misperceptions can be corrected through historical consciousness.
