“For me, the question ‘Who should speak’ is less crucial than ‘Who will listen?'” Spivak was quoted in the New York Times Sunday Review article by Kwame Anthony Appiah, “Go Ahead. Speak for Yourself.” Spivak also has recently delivered a number of talks and participated in discussions including “Planetary Utopias?” a conversation with Angela Davis and Nikita Dhawan at Akademie der Kunst in Berlin (which may be watched here), and “Spivak dans le siècle,” the opening and closing talks at a three-day conference on Spivak’s own work at Sorbonne 3 in Paris.
