The Post-Colonial Critic
Interviews, Strategies, Dialogues
Routledge – 1990 – 176 pages
Gayatri Spivak, one of our best known cultural and literary theorists, addresses a vast range of political questions with both pen and voice in this unique book. The Post-Colonial Critic brings together a selection of interviews and discussions in which she has taken part over the past five years; together they articulate some of the most compelling politico-theoretical issues of the present.
In these lively texts, students of Spivak's work will identify her unmistakeable voice as she speaks on questions of representation and self-representation, the politicization of deconstruction; the situations of post-colonial critics; pedagogical responsibility; and political strategies.
"A set of interviews that render Spivak's thought more accessible, The Post-Colonial Critic could be considered a primer on constructing positionalities." -- College Literature
