Identity politics and the need for a ‘tomorrow’

By Gurminder K. Bhambra and Victoria Margree

Abstract

Recent years have witnessed a general backlash against\ud identity politics, both in the academy and the public\ud sphere. This paper recognises the problems in identity\ud politics as arising from an apparent difficulty in\ud conceptualising identity separately from notions\ud of fixity and exclusion. It argues that politicised identities\ud could, instead, be premised upon an explicit affirmation\ud of the provisionality of political identity that is oriented\ud to a “tomorrow “ in which the identity will no longer\ud be required
