Third World studies is not ethnic studies (Chicago or post-1968), multiculturalism, or postcolonialism. Rather the subjects of Third World studies are the oppressed, the people of the Third World. The field descends from the anticolonial, antiracist struggles of the Third World for self-determination, “the problem of the twentieth century.” Third World studies focuses on power and its articulations to understand oppression in the language and ideology of the ruling class and to chart futures free from the discourses and practices of the dominant order.
