Controversial, challenging and outspoken, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is best known as a deconstructionist and post-colonial theorist.  With an awe-inspiring track record in several areas, ranging from Feminism and Marxism to Literary Criticism and of course, Post-colonialism, she has built a reputation for being simultaneously at home and an outsider in many disciplines. The interviews collected in this volume reflect the international character of her intellectual engagement as, in her criss-crossings of the globe, she engages with activists, scholars and writers located in different cultural contexts, from America to India to Macedonia and China.

Book Description:

Controversial, challenging and outspoken, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is one of the most visible and controversial cultural critics of our time. Her reputation was first made by her translation and preface to Jacques Derrida's ground-breaking work, Of Grammatology. She has since built a global reputation in feminist, marxist and literary criticism as well as post-colonialism, a reputation underpinned by her active involvement in the practical politics of women's empowerment, third world education and development debates. The interviews collected here reflect the international character of her intellectual engagement with the ideas and the politics which are shaping our world.

About the Author:

Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is university professor in the humanities at Columbia University and the author of many books, including The Post-Colonial Critic, Nationalism and the Imagination and, with Judith Butler, Who Sings the Nation-State?, the last two also published by Seagull Books.
