Sample text

The writing of Hannah Arendt is not a natural place to look for decolonising resources. She is increasingly criticised for her particular validation of settler colonialism, as well as for her general endorsement of the universal value of the Western political tradition (Moses 2011, 2013; Lederman 2016). While Arendt challenges imperialism (which she understands to be the domination of one human society by another human society), she often endorses colonialism (which is framed as one human society’s occupation of space held by another, less than human society).

To seek to act in the shared space of politics (the middle thing) is not to share our politics. Such an engagement, it is worth emphasising once more, cannot presume commensurability between settler and Indigenous political frameworks, desires and goals. As Tuck and Yang (2012: 28–36) argue: the opportunities for solidarity lie in what is incommensurable rather than what is common… The answers will not emerge from friendly understanding, and indeed require a dangerous understanding of uncommonality that un-coalesces coalition politics - moves that may feel very unfriendly.

Rather, we need to challenge the aspects of our own identities which prevent us from locating ourselves as particular (Western settler) subjects, and from understanding that we are always already in relationship with Indigenous peoples. Some may argue that the universal claims and possessive dimensions of Western identity are so central that they cannot be challenged without overthrowing these identities themselves (see, for example, Moreton-Robinson on the possessive logic of white patriarchal sovereignty 2015).
