In The Location of Culture, he uses concepts such as mimicry, interstice, hybridity, and liminality to argue that cultural production is always most productive where it is most ambivalent.

See Leela Gandhi, Postcolonial Theory: It is these voices which make up the postcolonial condition, with contemporary theorist Robert J. This is reinforced by the contention surrounding the term itself: A number of critics have suggested that the poststructuralist approach to postcolonialism lacks a coherent political methodology.
However, instead of limiting our understanding, it is these very oppositions and singularities that play such an integral role in informing the postcolonial condition and, more specifically, its cultural difference and identity politics. For Bhabha, the reconciliation of postcolonial political thought and theory is integral to his work. While Bhabha himself questions the potential inapplicability of poststructuralist literary theory to the material concerns of 13 Michel Foucault, Robert Hurley trans.
The underpinnings of the colonial condition are predicated upon the fixed identity of the colonised and the coloniser and, in turn, the cultural differences thus created. The notion of the stereotype manifests itself within the complex dynamics and relations between colonial identities and cultural difference; between the coloniser and colonised; the self and other.
Rose eds. However, as both Said and Bhabha contend, this desire for the Other to imitate can only go so far, as a completely identical manifestation would render colonial ideology and legitimacy void. The recognition that tradition bestows is a partial form of identification. In restaging the past it introduces other, incommensurable cultural temporalities into the invention of tradition. This process estranges any immediate access to an originary identity or a 'received' tradition. The borderline engagements of cultural difference may as often be consensual as conflictual; they may confound our definitions of tradition and modernity; realign the customary boundaries between the private and the public, high and low; and challenge normative expectations of development and progress.
I wanted to make shapes or set up situations that are kind of open My work has a lot to do with a kind of fluidity, a movement back and forth, not making a claim to any specific or essential way of being.
She reflects on the need to understand cultural difference as the production of minority identities that 'split' - are estranged unto themselves - in the act of being articulated into a collective body: Multiculturalism doesn't reflect the complexity of the situation as I face it daily I don't want to condemn well-meaning people and say like those T-shirts you can buy on the street 'It's a black thing, you wouldn't understand.
Political empowerment, and the enlargement of the multiculturalist cause, come from posing questions of solidarity and community from the interstitial perspective.
Social differences are not simply given to experience through an already authenticated cultural tradition; they are the signs of the emergence of community envisaged as a project - at once a vision and a construction - that takes you 'beyond' yourself in order to return, in a spirit of revision and reconstruction, to the political conditions of the present: Even then, it's still a struggle for power between various groups within ethnic groups about what's being said and who's saying what, who's representing who?
What is a community anyway? What is a black community?
What is a Latino community? I have trouble with thinking of all these things as monolithic fixed categories.
Green makes a metaphor of the museum building itself, rather than simply using the gallery space: I used architecture literally as a reference, using the attic, the boiler room, and the stairwell to make associations between certain binary divisions such as higher and lower and heaven and hell.
The stairwell became a liminal space, a pathway between theupper and lower areas, each of which was annotated with plaques referring to blackness and whiteness. The hither and thither of the stairwell, the temporal movement and passage that it allows, prevents identities at either end of it from settling into primordial polarities.Through the opaqueness of words we confront the historical memory of the Western nation which is 'obliged to forget'.
In the same way a translation, instead of making itself similar to the meaning of the original, it must lovingly and in detail, form itself according to the manner of meaning of the original, to make them both recognizable as the broken fragments of the greater language, just as fragments are the broken parts of a vessel.

Terry Eagleton once wrote in the Guardian, 'Few post-colonial writers can rival Homi Bhabha in his exhilarated sense of alternative possibilities'.
Fredric Jameson invokes something similar in his notion of 'situational consciousness' or national allegory, 'where the telling of the individual story and the individual experience cannot but ultimately involve the whole laborious telling of the collectivity itself.
