Example text

She believes postcolonialism to be “remarkably focused and distinctly unruly” (262) as it insists on an emphasis on colonialism while being eclectic in terms of ideas and methodologies. Said (1995) also emphasizes the distinctions between postmodernism and postcolonialism. He argues that postmodernism enacts a greater Eurocentric bias in its focus on the aesthetic, the local, the contingent, as well as “the almost decorative weightlessness of history, pastiche, and above all consumerism” (351).

She argues that globalization is a continuation of this process, and that “the subaltern woman is now to a rather large extent the support of production” (Spivak 1999a, 67). She emphasizes the role of the cultural dimension of imperialism in the creation of the Third World— a process of cultural production and domination she calls “worlding of the West as world” in which Western interests are universalized and naturalized in the rest of world (Spivak 1990). Kapoor (2004) points out that “for Spivak, the epistemic violence of imperialism has meant the transformation of the ‘Third World’ into a sign whose production has been obfuscated to the point that Western superiority and dominance are naturalized” (629).

In terms of historical materialism, the commonality is postcolonialism’s stress on the “importance of colonialism as a distinctly materialist force (even when refusing to accord class and surplus value a central place in its analysis)” (267). Postcolonialism’s critical stance toward dominant epistemologies and attention to the intersections of race, gender, and geographical positions in processes of knowledge/subjectivity production can also be considered to share a common ground with radical feminism (Prasad 2005).
