Chalcraft, John (2008) Question: what are the fruitful new directions in subaltern studies, and how can those working in Middle East studies most productively engage with them? International journal of Middle East studies, 40 (3). pp. 376-378. ISSN 0020-7438
More than twenty-five years ago, a small group of South Asianists challenged the bourgeois-nationalist and colonialist historiography of Indian nationalism. Based mostly in India and critical of “economistic” Marxism, they aimed to recover the occluded histories of what Antonio Gramsci calls “subaltern social groups” and to put into question the relations of power, subordination, and “inferior rank” more generally. The influence of subaltern studies quickly became international, inspiring research projects in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Middle East.
