BBRG PRESENTS: Annual Keynote Talk - Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak Situating Feminism

Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, University Professor and Director of the Center for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University

This presentation will attempt to situate feminism geographically, in terms of the triumph of the Euro-specific (even Anglo-specific) model, in terms of the history of both of Marxism and Capitalism. It will trace feminisms itinerary through both coloniality and globalization. It will also attempt to situate feminism historically in terms of the provenance of what we at radical U.S. universities call feminism and see how it reflects on the development of mobility among women in terms of not only capital but also the great engines of world governance.
