Planetary Loves: Spivak, Postcoloniality, and Theology

Abstract:

Postcolonial theology has recently emerged as a site of intense intellectual and political energy and has taken its place in the interdisciplinary field of postcolonial studies. This book is animated by the conviction that postcolonial theology is now ready for a second, deeper phase of engagement with postcolonial theory, one that moves beyond the general to the specific. No critic has been more emblematic of the challenging and contested field of postcolonial theory than Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. In this volume, the product of a theological colloquium in which Spivak herself participated, theologians and biblical scholars engage with her thought in order to catalyze a diverse range of original theological and exegetical projects. The book opens with a topography of postcolonial theology and also includes other valuable introductory chapters. At the center of the collection are transcriptions of two extended public dialogues with Spivak on theology and religion in general. A further dozen chapters appropriate Spivak's work for theological and ethical reflection.
