Situating Spivak

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on Spivak's convoluted relationship with postcolonial studies. It attempts to situate Spivak not only in relation to the academic field of postcolonial studies but also the field of literary studies in which it first coalesced. As such, it begins not with postcolonial studies but with deconstruction.

Keywords: Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak; postcolonial studies; literary studies; deconstruction
