Description - Outside in the Teaching Machine by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
In this book, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak - teacher, feminist, cultural critic, literary theorist - addresses the crisis of multiculturalism. How are debates over the canon, ethnicity, Third World feminism, and the new cultural studies shaping our understanding of "culture"? One of the most influential scholars in critical theory today, Spivak's writing and lectures have become crucial to the understanding of both feminism and cultural studies. In this new volume, she addresses a wide range of issues affecting multicultural thinking in the university, such as ideas of post-coloniality and international feminism. Fourteen recent essays cover such topics as: the limits and openings of Marx in Derrida; feminism and deconstruction, again - negotiations; French feminism revisited; reading "The Satanic Verses"; "Sammy and Rosie Get Laid"; the question of culture studies. With a translator's ear, Spivak listens for difference, and urges us to hear in our language and in our culture the limits and possibilities of expression. "Outside in the Teaching Machine" is a passionate argument for a fuller, more responsible understanding of different cultures.
