There is a slick souvenir trinket postcard to advertise the event, with pic of “Rodney” from Celeste’s book “The Artificial Kingdom” – the postcard excellently prepared by Sharmadean and available at CCS – but you have all the details here. No need to book, come early to ensure a seat.

  1. More details – there are no tickets for this event, so please come early to claim a seat. The hall is big but there is no overflow and no streaming (sorry).

    I am not sure exactly what Gayatri will address in her lecture ‘Old Women’, but I do note she translated two stories by Mahasweta Devi in a book entitled Old Women about 6 years ago. For more on Mahasweta Devi see my commentary here: https://hutnyk.wordpress.com/2006/10/13/notes-for-devi/

    On Gayatri’s 1999 book, Critique of Postcolonial Reason, see here: https://hutnyk.wordpress.com/2007/10/24/spivak-critique-of-postcolonial-reason-11/
