Abstract [en]

Drawing upon Homi. K. Bhabha's essay A Personal Response and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak's Can The Subaltern Speak? I initiated my research project When the Silenced Voices Meet Homi. K. Bhabha's "Megaohone". The focal point of this paper aims at identifying and questioning the limitatpons of Bhabha's theories while highlighting Spivak's insightful perspectives. In conducting this project, the motif of my paper is derived, which is to question male scholars’ gender-blindness under the feminist lens in the field of post-colonial studies. Issues, such as identity, hybridity and representation are under discussion; meanwhile by citing the example of and debate on sati, the gender issue and the special contributions of postcolonial feminism are developed.
