Chandra Talpade Mohanty is Professor of Women’s Studies and Dean’s Professor of Humanities at Syracuse University, NY. She is also an activist and the author of a famous 1984 essay entitled ‘Under Western Essays: Feminist Scholarship and Colonial Discourses’ which she re-visited and rewrote after 2000 to articulate the new conditions brought about by globalisation. Jesper Nordahl, whose work is generally concerned with systems of power often involving sexual politics, offers an engaging interview-based portrait of a rare voice: that of a feminist and anti-capitalist public intellectual committed to a project of transborder solidarity.
