Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak - Our World

Feb 02, 12:00PM - 2:00PM
Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak - Our WorldGayatri Chakravorty Spivak
Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, Columbia University

Literary Theorist, Philosopher, Feminist For the last 40 years, Professor Gayatri Spivak, critic, scholar and public intellectual, has pushed the  humanities to focus on situations contributing to the defeat and  withdrawal of European empires from other parts of the world. These victories have forced many to rethink their place and their history.  Spivak’s translations brought post-structuralist philosophy to the United  States, her literary criticism shaped subaltern studies, her term,  “strategic essentialism,” was key to the culture wars of the 90s. Spivak is now part of an emerging rural community-based History Academy  movement across South Asia AND a group of scholars and intellectuals  debating the post-colonial predicament facing our world.
