"Overall, In Other Words represents an impressive effort by Ray to link, compress but also carefully reread a wide swath of Spivak's work. At times disorienting in its scope like the theorist's own work, Ray's book offers a sustained engagement with some of Spivak's most valuable insights and has me returning to her oeuvre with fresh eyes." (Postcolonial Text, 2011)
Sangeeta Ray is Professor of English at the University of Maryland at College Park. She is the author of En-Gendering India: Woman and Nation in Colonial and Postcolonial Narratives (2000) and the co-editor of A Companion to Postcolonial Studies (Wiley-Blackwell, 2000).
Sangeeta Ray, a leading postcolonial feminist critic, provides a significant theoretical and critical engagement with the work of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. Spivak was first catapulted to fame as the translator and interpreter of Jacques Derrida’s Of Grammatology, and subsequently became instrumental in creating and shaping the field of postcolonial studies. This book outlines and engages with the central tenets of Spivak’s thought through a nuanced examination of the main themes of her work, including ethics, literature, feminism, pedagogy, postcoloniality, violence, and war. Ray adheres to the spirit of a Spivakian methodology as she traces and retraces the full development of Spivak’s thought from her very early work to her most recent essays.
