Edward Said is Everyone’s Intellectual Father
I was at a loft party in Brooklyn last night. We discussed how countries did not fall into categories of East and West, but at the same time, I felt any solutions I had for the Third World was completely from my position as detached Westerner. Then I explained how Edward Said single-handedly disbanded the Orientalist Studies department from universities.
Someone mentioned they admired Homi K. Bhabha. Turns out Mr. Bhabha is a descendant of the late, great Edward W. Said.
