This chapter examines the convergences and divergences between poststructuralist thought and postcolonial theory. Beginning with Edward Said's engagement with Michel Foucault, the chapter proceeds to examine how the thought of GWF Hegel was criticised by thinkers such as Sartre and Fanon; it concludes by considering how postcolonial theorists such as Gayatri Spivak, Homi Bhabha and Achille Mbembe have reconstellated the categories of western poststructuralist thought.
