The Imperial University

This chapter examines the ways the imperial university’s “heteropatriracial” ordering engenders heteropatriarchal Chicano studies that “exile” Chicana feminist and queer subjectivities by attacking, subordinating, and externalizing them. It focuses on the history and trajectory of imperial projects to inscribe and rearrange imperial subjects through the university. It then considers the historic and structural roots of the imperial university’s engagement with Chicano studies to understand better what shapes and creates the mode of academic colonial violence. The chapter also discusses that the convergence of an academic-military-prison-industrial complex creates the shadows of the university, the places where people of color are rendered exploitable and expendable.

Keywords:   imperial university, heteropatriracial, Chicano studies, feminists, university, academic colonial violence, color
