(p.95) Chapter Three California Cloning in French Algeria
How Knowledge Moves

Tiago Saraiva

University of Chicago Press

This chapter deals with the social and political dimensions of citrus production in Algeria under French rule illuminating the role of cloning practices that originated in California in the making of colonial relations. It details what travels and what gets transformed when technoscientific things such as oranges move. Building on Frantz Fanon’s powerful plea for bringing together apparently disparate colonial experiences, I hint at the value of transnational history grounded in concrete movements of people, ideologies, practices, and material artifacts. The aim is to probe the value of history of science and technology in replacing generic notions such as the global south with transnational historical dynamics tying together different spatial realities.
