Abstract

I discuss the implications of postcolonial studies for examining and expanding the study of international management. First, I outline various debates and approaches within the postcolonial field. Following this, I summarize key theoretical concepts emanating from three seminal postcolonial scholars — Said, Spivak, and Bhabha — whose works have helped define the field. I rely on each of their lenses — Orientalism, gendered postcolonial subject, and hybridity, respectively — to discuss possibilities and new directions for international management research.

Keywords: postcolonial theories, Spivak, Said, Bhahba, international management
