This chapter comments on Kwok Pui-lan's discussion in Chapter 3. Kwok Pui-lan very helpfully opened the door for dialogue between theologians such as those represented in this volume and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak by suggesting some points of potential overlap between Spivak's thoughts on planetarity and current possibilities for postcolonial feminist theology. She has demonstrated, as well as argued, the compatibility of some of Spivak's ideas and mode of thinking with the ideas and mode of theologizing by those of us in theology who have been influenced by Kwok. She also, of course, goes much further, sketching out some constructive directions that we might take to further the productive exchange, some of which this chapter has taken up in response.

Keywords:   Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, postcolonial theology, planetarity, feminist theology
