  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Colour, racialisation, agency, colonial and postcolonial world

The essay focuses on the relationship between colour, processes of racialisation and agency in a transnational and transdisciplinary perspective, with a particular focus on the British and English-speaking colonial and postcolonial world. The aim is showing how the relational construction of colour operating in both the colonial and slavery system of the past, and in the post-colonial and post-enslavement present, consists and primarily originates in the discursive and material deprivation/diminishing of the racial¬ised subject's agency.
