One comment on “Homi Bhabha to the rescue…

  1. I read Bhabha a long time ago so my comment is from a memory of that long ago reading of him. Also they come from lived experiences. Bhabha for me presents an almost visual discussion of in between places. I seem to recall spaces between levels such as ladders as one moves rhetorically and politically between those who were colonized and those who colonized. We may want to move beyond “post” colonization” but the fact remains that we live with consequences of past actions. So those who have a non-eurocentric world view find that they have to traverse between language(s) from “home cultures” and the new state in which they find themselves. I’ll have to dig deeper into old research to attempt to share and articulate what I understand of Bhabha and Said among many scholars I studied. Two females who come to mind who share Bhabha’s views are Anzaldúa and Spivak. Each profess more feminist and political views. Bhabha’s remains mostly political views.
