    Why Race and Gender Still Matter: An Intersectional Approach.Namita Goswami, Maeve M. O'Donavan & Lisa Yount (eds.) - 2014 - Pickering & Chatto.
    Intersectionality, the attempt to bring theories on race, gender, disability and sexuality together, has existed for decades as a theoretical framework. The essays in this volume explore how intersectionality can be applied to modern philosophy, as well as looking at other disciplines.

  4. Who Was Roop Kanwar? The Subject in Question in Contemporary Feminist Theory.Namita Goswami - 2003 - Dissertation, Emory University
    My dissertation is a philosophical analysis of the status of the subject in contemporary feminist theory. I perform this analysis through a case study of Roop Kanwar, a 19 year-old Rajput widow, who was immolated on the funeral pyre of her husband in September 1987 in western India. I argue that the aggregate ontology of the racially marked and colonized female body as object/victim predetermines the subject and its knowledge production, given its categories of identity. Can particularity yield and substantiate (...)

    This essay conducts a comparative reading of Gayatri Spivak’s discussion of the Hindu epic Mahabharata and Mahasweta Devi’s story “Draupadi.” While scholars have examined Devi’s tribal protagonist Draupadi in conjunction with the high Hindu goddess Draupadi of the epic, I suggest that the former’s viswarupadarshana should be read in contrast to the role of the Mahabharata’s Hindu God Krishna. This comparison shows the feminist and postcolonial import of Devi’s story, as it demonstrates the continuity of caste-based tribal exploitation from antiquity (...)

    The (M)Other of All Posts.Namita Goswami - 2013 - Critical Philosophy of Race 1 (1):104-120.
    Paul Gilroy's subtle use of Theodor Adorno in Postcolonial Melancholia misses the opportunity to forge for the postcolonial world a sense of responsibility for the colonial cultures that this postcolonial world helped to create. Gilroy rightly emphasizes the naïveté often associated with attempts to “dwell convivially with difference”. His negatively dialectical reading of the deterministic logics of racial difference brings into view an already present demotic multiculturalism. He neglects, however, how Adorno's conception of negative dialectics can be understood as postcolonial (...)

    Raddi, Phisaddi, and Bekar : Locating Spivak’s Originary Queerness in Salman Rushdie’s Shame.Namita Goswami - 2021 - Angelaki 26 (5):38-56.
    Spivak refers to “originary queerness” as a concept she cannot yet theorize. If concepts convey and uphold heterogeneous lived experience, then the paradoxical missing-ness of a corresponding “what...

    Europe as an Other: Postcolonialism and Philosophers of the Future.Namita Goswami - 2014 - Hypatia 29 (1):59-74.
    This essay challenges the reduction of Gayatri Spivak's critique of postcolonial reason to functional and derivative identity politics. Such a reading neutralizes the philosophical nature of Spivak's conceptual contributions. Because Spivak is derided as preaching about subaltern victimhood, this essay discerns what is philosophical about the concept of the subaltern. I focus on Spivak's attempt at a space-clearing gesture that can create the possibility for breaking the frame of Eurocentrism. I argue that for this philosopher of the future, the concept (...)
