Third Space: Curated Bibliography

From Sebastian Olma, PhD . Third space and the logic of serendipity.

Homi Bhabha (1994) in "Frontlines/Borderposts: Displacements: Cultural Identities" writes:
What is theoretically innovative, and politically crucial, is the necessity of thinking beyond initial categories and initiatory subjects and focusing on those interstitial moments or processes that are produced in the articulation of "differences." These spaces provide the terrain for elaborating strategies of selfhood and communal representations that generate new signs of cultural difference and innovative sites of collaboration and contestation. It is at the level of interstices that the intersubjective and collective experiences of nationness, community interest, or cultural value are negotiated. (p. 269)
Next, Bhabha (1994) poses a series of provocative questions to illuminate these in-between spaces. He asks:
How are subjects formed "in-between," or in excess of, the sum of the "parts" of difference (usually intoned as race/class/ender etc.)? What collective identities become possible in the overlapping, or displacing, or domains of difference? How do strategies of representation or empowerment come to be formulated in the competing claims of communities where, despite shared histories of deprivation and discrimination, the exchange of values meanings, and priorities may not be collaborative and dialogical, but profoundly antagonistic, conflictual and even incommensurable? (pp. 269-270)
