Join Adam Shatz in learning more about Frantz Omar Fanon.

Fanon was a Martinique-born Afro-Caribbean psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary, and writer whose works are influential in the fields of post-colonial studies, critical theory, and Marxism. As an intellectual, Fanon was a political radical, Pan-Africanist, and Marxist humanist concerned with the psychopathology of colonization, and the human, social, and cultural consequences of decolonization.

Adam Shatz is a contributing editor at the London Review of Books, and a contributor to the New York Review of Books and other publications. He has reported from Algeria, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt. He is currently a fellow in residence at the New York Institute for the Humanities.
