Frantz Fanon’s combative decoloniality is based on a profound appreciation of the role of language and love in the constitution of the human. This presentation explores the idea that Fanon’s approach takes love beyond the scope of romanticism, just like his discussion of language takes language beyond the province of the humanities.

In 2005, the Africana Research Center and the Department of African and African American Studies initiated the Nelson Mandela Lecture Series to recognize and introduce the Penn State community to the scholarship of an African human rights activist and scholar.  The lecture is named after Nelson Mandela because he is, by far, the most widely recognized human rights activist; he not only changed the sociopolitical structure of South Africa, but he also challenged the world to have a conscience in addressing human rights.
