Attempting to recover or HETEROGENEOUS ENCOUNTERS 39 identify the voices of the subaltern means engaging with a colonial archive that by its very nature favors and supports analysis of the colonizer at the expense of the colonized and of the elite at the expense of the subaltern. Indeed, the disciplinary documents of history form an inextricable part of the legitimizing project of the colonial powers, such that a critique of them becomes a critique of the discipline (Prakash 1994). In other words, to work within the discipline of history means working within frameworks that inherently privilege certain forms of knowing over others; it means working with documents and sources that were created within unequal power dynamics that are replicated in the “doing” of academic history.

Foucault’s unacknowledged intellectual debts to Althusser and Marx remain largely to be explored (Balibar 1989; Foucault 1978).

Samir Amin (1997:3–5) argues that the new features of this dynamic are (1) the erosion of auto-centered nation-states and the linkage between the accumulation and reproduction of capital which was formerly defined in terms of those states, and (2) the erosion of the distinction between industrialized centers and nonindustrialized peripheries.
