Can the Subaltern Speak?
(999 items available)
In 1985, Indian scholar Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak published what would become a landmark essay in the academic study of colonialism. “Can the Subaltern Speak?” interrogates the obstructions that prevent certain subjects from being heard and how this state-enforced silence maintains the degradation of those at the peripheries of society. This volume revives Spivak’s text for yet another generation of thinkers, placed in dialogue with artwork by Ecuadorian artist Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza.
