Place de la Republique, Paris. A space of dispute, of exchange, of conflict, of (counter) histories. And there, "we" are. Maybe, the most popular pronoun in contemporary discourses. On behalf of whom do we speak when we speak of “we”? Who remain outside of this word, which presupposes a call for the collective? And then, is it possible to incarnate the voice of the people, of a community, by the statement of one individual? A reading of the text "Postcoloniality and the Artifice of History", by Dipesh Chakrabarty.
