Death of a discipline by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak( )
24 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For almost three decades, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak has been ignoring the standarized "rules" of the academy and trespassing across disciplinary boundaries. Today she remains one of the foremost figures in the study of world literature and its cultural consequences. In this new book she declares the death of comparative literature as we know it and sounds an urgent call for a "new comparative literature," in which the discipline is given new life - one that is not appropriated and determined by the market." "In the era of globalization, when mammoth projects of world literature in translation are being undertaken in the United States, how can we protect the multiplicity of languages and literatures at the university? Spivak demonstrates how critics interested in social justice should pay close attention to literary form and offers new interpretations of classics such as Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own. Through close readings of texts not only in English, French, and German but also in Arabic and Bengali, Spivak practices what she preaches."--BOOK JACKET

Who sings the nation-state? : language, politics, belonging by Judith Butler( Book )
23 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is contained in a state has become ever more plural while the boundaries of a state have become ever more fluid. In a world of migration and shifting allegiances - caused by cultural, economic, military and climatic change - the state is a more provisional place and its inhabitants, more stateless." "This spirited and engaging conversation, between two of America's foremost critics and two of the most influential theorists of the last decade, ranges widely across what Enlightenment and key contemporary philosophers have to say about the state, who exercises power in today's world, whether we can have a right to rights, the past, present, and future of the state in a time of globalization, and even what the singing of the "Star Spangled Banner" in Spanish says about the complex world we live in today."--Jacket

12 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'I had but that one arrow', says Chotti Munda, the hero of this epic tale. A 'magic' arrow that stood for the pride, the wisdom, the culture of his society, a society threatened with inevitable disintegration as its traditional structures crumbled under the assault of 'national development'." "The wide sweep of this important novel encompasses many layers. It ranges over decades in the life of Chotti - the central character - in which India moves from colonial rule to independence and then to the unrest of the 1970s. It probes and uncovers the complex web of social and economic exchange based on power relations. It traces the changes, some forced, some welcome, in the daily lives of a marginalized rural community. And at its core, it celebrates Chotti, legendary archer, wise and farsighted leader, proud role model to his younger brethren."--BOOK JACKET

Breast stories by Mahāśvetā Debī( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This cluster of short fiction has a common motif: the breast. As Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak points out in her introduction, the breast is far more than a symbol in these stories. It becomes the means of a harsh indictment of an exploitative social system. In "Draupadi", the protagonist, Dopdi Mejhen, is a tribal revolutionary, who, arrested and gang raped in custody, turns the terrible wounds of her breasts into a counter-offensive. In "Breast-giver", a woman who becomes a professional wet-nurse to support her family dies of painful breast cancer, betrayed alike by the breasts that for years had been her chief identity, and the dozens of "sons" she suckled. In "Behind the Bodice" migrant labourer Gangor's "statuesque" breasts excite the attention of ace photographer Upin Puri, triggering off a train of violence that ends in tragedy. Translator and scholar Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Avalon Foundation Professor in the Humanities, Columnbia University, introduces this cycle of "breast stories"; with thought-provoking essays which probe the texts of the stories, opening them up to a complex of interpretation and meaning
