Title : Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak : a bibliography
This online bibliography of the published works of postcolonial critic Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (1942- ), compiled by Eddie Yeghiayan, comprises a fairly exhaustive year-by-year listing (albeit only up to 2000 at the time of reviewing). Spivak, who has described herself as a Marxist, deconstructionist and feminist, made her reputation with a translation of, and preface to, Jacques Derrida's Of Grammatology. Her famous essay, "Can the subaltern speak?" (1988) is an example of her self-reflexive interrogation of the ethics of postcolonial critique. Hosted by the Critical Theory Institute at University of California, Irvine, the resource was established to complement Spivak's lectures for the Wellek library lecture series in 2000. Yeghiayan's bibliography also lists reviews of Spivak's books, as well as critical references to Spivak and her work.
