Summary/Abstract: In The Location of Culture, Hommi Bhabha sets out the conceptual imperative and political consistency of the post-colonial intellectual project. In a dazzling series of essays he explains why the culture of western modernity must be relocated from the post-colonial perspective. Bhabha discusses writers as Morrison, Gordimer, Conrad and Walcolt. And Bhabha rethinks questions of identity, social agency and national affiliation. In doing so he provides a theory of cultural hybridity and the ‘translation’ of social differences which goes beyond the polarities of Self and Other, East and West.
