Much of it, though, exists only in Bengali, and thus is unavailable to the rest of India and most of the world.

In , she attended Girton College, Cambridge , as a research student under the supervision of Professor T. Henn , writing on the representation of the stages of development of the lyric subject in the poetry of William Butler Yeats. She received tenure in She did not publish her doctoral dissertation, but decided to write a critical book on Yeats that would be accessible to her undergraduate students without compromising her intellectual positions.

From , she was a member of faculty at Columbia University as Avalon Foundation Professor in the Humanities, where, in , she was made University Professor in the Humanities.

Spivak has served on the advisory board of numerous academic journals, including differences , Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society , and Diaspora: A Journal of Transnational Studies. She is hailed as a critic who has feminized and globalized the philosophy of deconstruction, considering the position of the subaltern , a word used by Antonio Gramsci as describing ungeneralizable fringe groups of society who lack access to citizenship.

In the early 80s, she was also hailed as a co-founder of postcolonial theory , which she refused to accept fully, as has been demonstrated in her book Critique of Postcolonial Reason: Towards a History of the Vanishing Present , which suggests that so-called postcolonial theory should be considered from the point of view of who uses it in what interest.

This sustained attempt to access the epistemologies damaged by the millennial oppression of the caste system has allowed her to understand the situation of globality as well as the limits of high theory more clearly.

She has often referred to herself as a "practical Marxist-feminist-deconstructionist. This concept denotes a purposeful silencing through the "dismissing of a particular context as being irrelevant"; an institutionalized and ideological way of presenting the world. However, while others have built upon this idea of "strategic essentialism," Spivak has been unhappy with the ways the concept has been taken up and used. In interviews, she has disavowed the term, although she has not completely deserted the concept itself.

In a letter to the faculty, he wrote, Not only does her world-renowned scholarship—grounded in deconstructivist literary theory—range widely from critiques of post-colonial discourse to feminism, Marxism, and globalization; her lifelong search for fresh insights and understanding has transcended the traditional boundaries of discipline while retaining the fire for new knowledge that is the hallmark of a great intellect.

In speeches given and published since , Spivak has addressed the issue of terrorism and suicide bombings. With the aim of bringing an end to suicide bombings, she has explored and "tried to imagine what message [such acts] might contain," [27] ruminating that "suicidal resistance is a message inscribed in the body when no other means will get through.

It has not the banality of evil. It is informed by the stupidity of belief taken to extreme. Professors Jenny Sharpe and Mark Sanders are among her former students. Criticism[ edit ] Spivak has often been criticised for her cryptic prose. Spivak and the other signatories called the case a "legal nightmare" for Ronell and charged Reitman with conducting a "malicious campaign" against her.

Judith Butler , the chief signatory, subsequently apologized for certain aspects of the letter.
