Enlists the foundations of post-humanist critique to be able to examine many years of intimate dialogues among African American and Spanish intellectuals 
 

In Archives of Flesh, Robert Reid-Pharr finds the deep historical past of highbrow engagement among African the US and Spain.  Opening a desirable window onto black and anti-Fascist highbrow existence from 1898 in the course of the mid-1950s, Reid-Pharr argues that key associations of Western Humanism, together with American faculties and universities, built in intimate relation to slavery, colonization, and white supremacy.  This retreat to rigidly proven philosophical and significant traditions can by no means absolutely address—or even totally recognize—the deep-seated hostility to black subjectivity underlying the humanist perfect of a transcendent Manhood.               

Calling for a in particular anti-white supremacist reexamination of the files of black subjectivity and resistance, Reid-Pharr enlists the rules of post-humanist critique with a view to examine many years of intimate dialogues among African American and Spanish intellectuals, together with Salaria Kea, Federico Garcia Lorca, Nella Larsen, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Chester Himes, Lynn Nottage, and Pablo Picasso. within the strategy Reid-Pharr takes up the “African American Spanish Archive” to be able to face up to the anti-corporeal, anti-black, anti-human biases that stand on the middle of Western Humanism.
