Jury wrote a new paper called “The importance of language as tool of the colonization in Homi K. Bhabha and Frantz Fanon”: This paper elaborates on the idea of Homi K. Bhabha that teaching English serves as a tool for the colonizing of certain culture. In particularly, Bhabha speaks about the importance of the English book as a sacred commodity fetish that not coercively forces certain culture silently accept the domination of the other culture. However, Fanon develops this idea by saying that language itself serves as a tool of constructing power-relations between Master (the colonizer) and Slave (the native). In sum, this paper will suggest that language itself as a tool of the epistemological domination serves as a powerful mechanism for the colonization of the certain territory combined with economical imperialism, when the possibility of your visibility as a native depends on the studying of the language of the Master.
