Homi K. Bhabha is the Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of English and American Literature and Language, and the Director of the Humanities Center at Harvard University. He is one of the most important figures in contemporary post-colonial studies, and has developed a number of the field’s neologisms and key concepts, such as hybridity, mimicry, difference, and ambivalence. Such terms describe ways in which colonized peoples have resisted the power of the colonizer, according to Bhabha’s theory. In 2012, he received the Padma Bhushan award in the field of literature and education from the Indian government.
His books include: On Art (forthcoming); A Global Measure (forthcoming); The Right to Narrate (forthcoming); Beyond Photography (2011); Our Neighbours, Ourselves (2011); Elusive Objects (2009); On Global Memory (2009); The Black Savant and the Dark Princess (2006); Framing Fanon (2005); The Location of Culture (Routledge Classics, 2004); Still Life (2004); Adagio (2004).
