9781905422289: Conversations with Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak

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. In these thought-provoking interviews and talks, we see her being provocative, playful, personal and accessible in a way that her complex, theoretical essays do not allow. The interviews collected here reflect the international character of her intellectual engagement with the ideas and the politics which are shaping our world.

Book Description Seagull Books, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. ?She has probably done more long-term political good, in pioneering feminist and postcolonial studies within global academia, than almost any of her theoretical colleagues.? Terry Eagleton ?I do not want to get involved in judging whether people are reading me right or wrong because whatever they are doing, such a reading is possible. I think possessiveness about one?s work is not a good idea, first of all, and secondly, I don?t think my work is written in stone, I correct it all the time myself. Also, there are so many other things I haven?t read anyway, so reading other people?s writing on me and saying they were wrong . . . can you imagine what a waste of time that would be?? Controversial, challenging and outspoken, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is best known as a deconstructionist and post-colonial theorist, who chooses to describe herself as a ?para-disciplinary, ethical philosopher.? Her reputation was first made for her translation and preface to Jacques Derrida?s Of Grammatology (1976) and she has since rapidly developed an awe-inspiring track record in several areas, ranging from Feminism and Marxism to Literary Criticism and of course, Postcolonialism, building 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. Printed Pages: 180. Bookseller Inventory # 3848
