How can we unpack the relationship between African, Asian and Indigenous American subject positions?
The answer, according to Iyko Day, lies in land and labour. Through a reading of the introduction of Iyko Day’s Alien Capital, this reading group introduces questions of settler colonialism, Indigeneity and ‘alien’ labour as anchored in projects of capitalist expansion.
