Orientalism K SDI 3-Week 2016 1NC-Long Western knowledge of the East is grounded in paternalistic imperialism— supposedly objective and apolitical knowledge claims mask a violent Western will to power that drives to organize reality around its own set of flawed foundational assumptions – their “benevolent influence” is just an epistemological colonialism whose ultimate goal is domination – their representations justify Western mastery and control. Anand 07 (Dibyesh, PhD in politics at Bristol University “Western Colonial Representations of the Other,” New Political Science, Volume 29, Issue 1, 2007, ) Within the context of European imperialism, the issue of the representation of natives was often considered as belonging to the realm of scientific objective ethnography, journalistic commentaries, or fiction.2 A clear boundary was said to exist between fiction and non-fiction writing. It was presumed that, unlike fiction, non-fiction writing such as literary and popular journalism, exploration and travel writings, memoirs of colonial officials, and so on is unmediated by the consciously aesthetic requirements of imaginative literature.3 Emphasis was on the recording of observed facts. However, as argued by scholars from fields as diverse as postcolonial studies,4 anthropology,5 and international relations,6 such views are no longer tenable . Starting with Said,7 the enterprise of postcolonial theory has unpacked the notion of neutral academic expertise and highlighted how Western knowledge and representations of the non-Western world are neither innocent nor based on some pre-existing “reality,” but implicated in the West’s will to power, and its imperial adventures . The image of a scientific, apolitical, disinterested, knowledge-seeking “gentleman” braving all odds to study non-Western cultures has been revealed as hollow.
