In Chapter 2, the author lays the theoretical framework for the rest of the chapters. This chapter serves as an introduction to the complex theories of postcolonialism using accessible language and examples from global events. Important figures in the field of postcolonial theory such as Homi Bhabha, Gayatri Spivak, Edward Said, and Chandra Talpade Mohanty provide the organizing structure for this chapter. Some of these theorists work to deconstruct the knowledge and culture that created and maintained colonial power, while others begin to explore the complex psychological effects that colonialism left on the minds of the colonized. Spivak and Mohanty explore the history and legacy of colonialism and postcolonialism and their effect on the enforcement of gender constructions. By questioning both western feminism and patriarchal postcolonialism, these theorists begin to explore the complexity of how transnational feminisms can inform both theory and practice. The basic concepts of transnational feminism are introduced and intersected with the postcolonial. The relatively new field of postcolonial pedagogy is introduced here and expanded upon in later chapters.
