Related: theory - literary theory


Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is a deconstructive literary critic and theorist. She is best-known for the article "Can the Subaltern Speak?", which was a founding text of postcolonialism, and also for her translation of Derrida's Of Grammatology. Spivak currently teaches at Columbia University, though Spivak teaches abroad and travels so much that in academic circles in New York the old joke goes, "Where does Gayatri Spivak teach?" Punchline: "Everywhere but Columbia." --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gayatri_Chakravorty_Spivak, Apr 2004
