Nandita Sharma is professor of sociology at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. She is an activist scholar who examines racism, nationalism, international migration, and postcolonial social relations. Nandita is active in No Borders movements and those struggling for the planetary commons.
Nandita Sharma responds to Phil Henderson’s review of her new book, “Home Rule.” She argues that instead of providing us with freedom and justice, national liberation struggles have delivered us to capital and to sovereign power. As a result, rejecting nationalism – all nationalisms, including indigenous nationalisms “from below” – is critical to anti-colonial struggle.
