The Location of Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rethinking questions of identity, social agency and national affiliation, Bhabha provides a working, if controversial, theory of cultural hybridity - one that goes far beyond previous attempts by others. In The Location of Culture, he uses concepts such as mimicry, interstice, hybridity, and liminality to argue that cultural production is always most productive where it is most ambivalent. Speaking in a voice that combines intellectual ease with the belief that theory itself can contribute to practical political change, Bhabha has become one of the leading post-colonial theorists of this era.

Synopsis:

Explains why the post-colonial critique has altered forever the landscape of postmodern discourse. This work examines the displacement of the colonizer's legitimizing cultural authority and looks at the cultural and political boundaries which exist in gender, race, class and sexuality.

Synopsis:

Homi Bhabha is one of that small group occupying the front ranks of cultural theoretical thought. Any serious discussion of post-colonial/postmodern scholarship is inconceivable without referencing Mr. Bhabha. - Toni Morrison

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 257-276) and index.
