    Realizing the Social Contract: The Case of Colonialism and Indigenous Peoples.Robert Lee Nichols - 2005 - Contemporary Political Theory 4 (1):42-62.
    From 1922 to 1924, the Iroquois Confederacy — a federal union of six aboriginal nations — sought resolution of a dispute between themselves and Canada at the League of Nations. In this paper, the historical events of the 1920s League are employed as a case study to explore the development of the international society of states in the early 20th century as it relates to the indigenous peoples of North America. Specifically, it will be argued that the early modern practice (...)

    Theft Is Property! The Recursive Logic of Dispossession.Robert Nichols - 2018 - Political Theory 46 (1):3-28.
    This article offers a preliminary critical-historical reconstruction of the concept of dispossession. Part I examines its role in eighteenth- and nineteenth- century struggles against European feudal land tenure. Drawing upon Marx’s critique of French anarchism in particular, I identify a persistent limitation at the heart of the concept. Since dispossession presupposes prior possession, recourse to it appears conservative and tends to reinforce the very proprietary and commoditized models of social relations that radical critics generally seek to undermine. Part II turns (...)

    Postcolonial Studies and the Discourse of Foucault: Survey of a Field of Problematization.Robert Nichols - 2010 - Foucault Studies 9:111-144.
    This paper presents a critical survey of the use and interpretation of the work of Michel Foucault in the field of postcolonial studies. The paper uses debates about Foucault’s legacy and his contributions (or lack thereof) to postcolonialism as a means of parsing out the main lines of contestation within the field—that is, as a means of tracing the contours of the space of questioning or field of problematization, in part to foreground what has been at stake and, more to (...)

    The Colonialism of Incarceration.Robert Nichols - 2014 - Radical Philosophy Review 17 (2):435-455.
    This essay attends to the specificity of indigenous peoples’ political critique of state power and territorialized sovereignty in the North American context as an indispensible resource for realizing the decolonizing potential latent within the field of critical prison studies. I argue that although the incarceration of indigenous peoples is closely related to the experience of other racialized populations with regard to its causes, it is importantly distinct with respect to the normative foundation of its critique. Indigenous sovereignty calls forth an (...)

    Chaucer's Fortune, Truth, and Gentilesse: The “Last” Unpublished Manuscript TranscriptionsArticle Author Querynichols Re [Google Scholar].Robert Nichols - 1969 - Speculum 44 (1):46-50.
    It has been two decades since George B. Pace noted that a mere four manuscripts of Chaucer's Short Poems remained unpublished: a Phillipps 11409 Truth, the Vossius 9 Truth and Fortune, and the Cambridge University Library Gg. 4. 27 Gentilesse. In the interim, Professor Pace, in conjunction with A. I. Doyle, has transcribed the contents of a fifth manuscript, Coventry, missing twenty years ago. jQuery.click { event.preventDefault(); }).

    Empire and the Dispositif of Queerness.Robert Nichols - 2012 - Foucault Studies 14:41-60.
    Thinkers heavily indebted to Foucault—such as Wendy Brown, Judith Butler, Jodi Melamed and Jasbir Puar—are at the fore of a contemporary interrogation of queerness and racialized empire. This paper critically surveys this terrain, differentiates several strands of it, and attempts a theoretical reframing such that we may be better equipped to gain new vantage on the central problematic. I argue that the current conviviality of queerness and empire is best understood not only through a univocal ‘homonationist’ lens, but also requires (...)

  19. The the World of Freedom: Heidegger, Foucault, and the Politics of Historical Ontology.Robert Nichols - 2014 - Stanford University Press.
    Martin Heidegger and Michel Foucault are two of the most important and influential thinkers of the twentieth century. Each has spawned volumes of secondary literature and sparked fierce, polarizing debates, particularly about the relationship between philosophy and politics. And yet, to date there exists almost no work that presents a systematic and comprehensive engagement of the two in relation to one another. _The World of Freedom_ addresses this lacuna. Neither apology nor polemic, the book demonstrates that it is not merely (...)
