negotiating X with Y?[edit]

Just visiting this page, (which I thought was excellent) but I stumbled at the very end: "negotiating his position within postcolonial studies with his influence on the formation of contemporary black queer theory" - I find this confusing, to say the least. I'm unsure what "negotiating X with Y" might mean. Balancing/juggling or something is intended? 'negotiating X and Y'? uh.. Maybe the term is used that way in the literature. But to me it just seems wrong. I'm not sure what is meant exactly, and am no expert, so can't change it myself. 110.20.168.169 (talk) 06:19, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

was he 17 or 18?[edit]

from the article: 'Fanon left Martinique in 1943 when he was 18 years old in order to join the Free French forces...'

But also this: 'At the age of seventeen, Fanon fled the island as a "dissident" (a term used for Frenchmen joining Gaullist forces), traveling to British-controlled Dominica to join the Free French Forces.'DanLanglois (talk) 21:08, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Khmer Rouge[edit]

I think I understood from [The Trap (TV series)]] that he was an influence on the Khmer Rouge. Did it misunderstand? --Error (talk) 02:32, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Does anybody disagree with Fanon about anything?[edit]

If they do, I don't see evidence of it in this article. I do see some titles in the Books section that may or may not have something critical to say about his thought, but the word "critical" is of little help as it has a special meaning when used as in "critical studies". The title of Gibson's Rethinking Fanon: The Continuing Dialogue is suggestive and perhaps a knowledgeable editor has something to add if, as I suspect, there are scholars who see Marxist or other elements of his anti-colonialism as counterproductive. If I'm right about that I should like to see some discussion of it in the article. I understand that the fact that scholars have criticized Marx, Lacan, or other influences on Fanon does not necessarily mean they have addressed Fanon's views specifically. —Blanchette (talk) 08:04, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
