(p.117) Conclusion (Postcolonial Blanchot?)
Deconstruction and the Postcolonial
Liverpool University Press

This concluding chapter takes its cue from a number of references to Maurice Blanchot in the margins of recent texts by postcolonial writers and critics. It asks: how can we best make sense of these references, and how can we read the texts of Blanchot today in relation to postcolonial themes and contexts? While Blanchot was clearly an important and influential figure for Derrida, his work seems on the face of it to be at a distant remove from postcolonial concerns. What would it mean, therefore, to talk about a ‘postcolonial Blanchot’?

Keywords:   Maurice Blanchot, postcolonial writers, Derrida
