Reconnoitering Settler Colonization Part I: Its Philosophy and Praxis


The overview covers colonial studies, poststructuralism (with its emphasis on using language [rhetorics] as a tool of comprehending, controlling, and subjugating others), and the emergence of postcolonial studies after that. This analysis sheds light on postcolonial studies’ flaws, including their emphasis on theoretical consistency at the expense of cultural and historical distinctiveness, their fixation on the past, and their obscuring of the existence of settler colonial regimes or circumstances in modern civilizations. As a result, they begin a study of settler-colonization on a worldwide scale from the time of the Bible to the present, paying close attention to its nature, ideology, methods, and practise. The theoretical foundation is based on settler-colonial studies, a growing field, and the approach includes literary and historical study. Part II of the project, which will apply settler-colonial studies to the situation in Nigeria, is laid out in this essay.
