Conversations with Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
Book DescriptionControversial, 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.
