Dusé Mohamed Ali

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines the formation of pan-Africanist and pan-Islamic politics in Europe in the context of post-World War I League of Nations colonial formations in the Middle East. It examines the career of Dusé Mohamed Ali, who claimed to be a Sudanese Egyptian intellectual and was the founder of the influential African Times and Orient Review. Ali moved to London after the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, and he confronted new nationalisms throughout the Arab world that were formed under the framework of the League of Nations’ mandate system. The chapter shows how the League of Nations enshrined the logic of cultural pluralism as a framework of international governance. The League’s system created the category “national minority” and in doing so established new conditions of possibility within which groups could be made legible within the international order.

Keywords:   League of Nations, colonial formation, Egyptian intellectual, nationalism, cultural pluralism, international governance, national minority, Middle East
