A thread of literature where people can read about & understand settler-colonialism.
Not as an ontological temporality, but as a continuing structure, not an event.
One that continues to be the primary relation that structures the relationship between settlers & natives:
“Settler colonialism is a distinct type of colonialism that functions through the replacement of indigenous populations with an invasive settler society that, over time, develops a distinctive identity and sovereignty.” https://globalsocialtheory.org/concepts/settler-colonialism/
“These ways of relating also exist in opposition to capitalism’s twin, settler colonialism, which calls for the destruction of Indigenous peoples and their other-than-human kin” https://www.versobooks.com/books/2953-our-history-is-the-future
“When related back to primitive accumulation it appears that the history & experience of dispossession, not proletarianization, has been the dominant background structure shaping the historical relationship between Indigenous peoples & the Canadian state” https://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/red-skin-white-masks
“Khalidi traces a hundred years of colonial war on the Palestinians, waged first by the Zionist movement then Israel, but backed by Britain & the United States, the great powers of the age” “In this sense the Nakba can be understood as an ongoing process” https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781627798556
“This [logic of] elimination can be seen as the organising principle of settler-colonial society rather than a one-off (and superseded) occurrence ...
Invasion is a Structure, not an event” https://www.versobooks.com/books/1907-traces-of-history
“In the colonies the economic infrastructure is also a superstructure. You are rich because you are white you are white because you are rich. This is why a Marxist analysis should always be slightly stretched when it comes to addressing the colonial issue” https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/573/57385/the-wretched-of-the-earth/9780141186542.html
“There is a long tradition among Palestine scholars, artists, and politicians of naming the colonisation of North America as both a precursor and a complement to Zionist settlement” https://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/inter-nationalism
“Palestinians saw South Africa, like Palestine, as a racial, settler-colonial state, and themselves as part of a larger anti-colonial, anti-imperial and anti-racist global movement.” https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/why-calling-israel-apartheid-state-not-enough
“The policy of replacement was employed by Zionist settler colonialism since long before the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and entailed replacing depopulated Palestinian villages with Jewish settlements” https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/traces-of-racial-exception-9781350032064/
‘Settler societies’ have complicated the neat dichotomy between Europe and the rest of the world insofar as they are distinct from ‘colonies of exploitation’ https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/unsettling-settler-societies/book203718
“It is not the case that that dispossession is always explainable in terms of its function relative to proletarianization, a matter that is obscured by the modular conception of primitive accumulation in both its original and revisionist forms.” https://www.dukeupress.edu/theft-is-property
