This is an introductory guide to the work of a major contemporary theorist that includes an interview with Spivak herself. "Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak: Live Theory" offers a concise, comprehensive and accessible introduction to the themes central to the thought of one of the world's most provocative and original theorists. The book concentrates on Spivak's engagement, in theory and practice, with deconstruction, Marxism, feminism, and issues of postcoloniality and globalization, and makes clear the extent of her impact in the fields of postcolonial and literary theory. In this engaging and stimulating book, Mark Sanders explores the questions Spivak has posed with increasing regularity in recent years: What is the responsibility in today's world of the literary reader? What specifically does a training in the literary habit of reading bring to political and intellectual responsibility? Can reading lead to a responsible form of global or transnational literacy? The book includes a new interview with Spivak herself, in which she discusses the key themes in her work as well as future writing plans. "Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak: Live Theory" is a key resource for anyone studying this pioneering thinker.
