This week, the IRR publishes a memorial issue of Race & Class celebrating the lifework of the late Barbara Harlow, Solidarity here and everywhere.
Barbara Harlow, a Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Texas at Austin described as ‘a critic of both the world and the text’, profoundly shaped the fields of feminist and post-colonial theories, Middle Eastern and African literatures and gender studies. She taught academics to remain true to being radical. As critic, activist and teacher, she has been compared to her contemporary Edward Said, who coined the phrase ‘solidarity here and everywhere’, used to title this issue.
