Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is widely recognised as one of the most influential voices to fearlessly advocate for the marginalised and shape the discourse of comparative literature. The writer of the seminal text "Can The Subaltern Speak?" and translator of Jacques Derrida’s Of Grammatology has taken bold, unusual ways to defy dominant narratives of Western academia, and challenge existing power structures to make space for the voiceless. In this conversation, she sits down with academic Chitra Sankaran and writer and artist Shubigi Rao to discuss speaking up, being out of turn, and leaving no stone unturned in striving for a more equitable world.
