|Title||"Memories of underdevelopment" after area studies|
|Publication Type||Journal Article|
|Year of Publication||2012|
An essay is presented on how area studies were founded on the privilege linked to fixed spatial containers, such as geographic area, culture region, or directional locality. It offers a containment strategy for identification of specific space/time relationships, and analysis of forms of temporality drawn from social formations and production modes, in spite of the dominance of capitalism. The author rethinks progress as a relative term that considers missed opportunities and possibilities.
