Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak: In Other Words

Wiley Blackwell, 2009

This book introduces and discusses the works of leading feminist postcolonialist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, by exploring the key concepts and themes to emerge from them. Ray focuses on the key themes to emerge from Spivak's work, such as ethics, literature, feminism, pedagogy, postcoloniality, violence, and war. Ray also assesses Spivak's often contentious relationship with feminist and postcolonial studies and considers the significance of her work for other fields, such as ethnography, history, cultural studies and philosophy.
