2016 (English)In: Austere Histories in European Societies: Social Exclusion and the Contest of Colonial Memories / [ed] Stefan Jonsson, Julia Willén, London: Routledge, 2016Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Following the failure of Europe to confront its supressed colonial past on a general level, the colonial wound continues to repeat itself. In the present, this wound is manifested as a colonial divide that separates postcolonial citizens, indigenes, and migrants from majority Europeans. In this concluding chapter, we argue that this inequality is being sanctioned by hegemonic history writing, as well as being maintained, or even aggravated, by the current ideological conditions of austerity. Against a horizon of an austere future, and as an alternative to the austere histories that are critically examined in this volume, we here suggest a historiography that takes its point of departure in this wound: how the colonial past transformed Europe and thus is preserved as an integral part of the present and its future.
