My Comment on ‘Blood’ by Gil Anidjar

I was asked to participate in an event recently organised by the Philosophy @ UWS initiative, Encountering the Author, a discussion of Blood: A Critique of Christianity by the Columbia University Professor of Religion and Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies, Gil Anidjar. I could not attend but produced a recording of my commentary which can be heard here.

I found the book absolutely fascinating but I wanted to discuss what implications thinking with blood has for race critical and decolonial scholarship or, in other words, what does Blood add to race?

Critical comments welcomed.
