Since this paper was written originally some four years ago, it seems relevant to supply a little of its history. My interest in Bhabha came about somewhat fortuitously as a result of research into the concept of 'cultural translation'; a concept which has become rather more current, and, perhaps, rather more respectable, now, than it was at that time. Again, the quest which preceded my discovery both of the concept and of Bhabha was motivated by a need for a theory that would provide ways of reading metropolitan, mainstream, canonical, European texts side by side with local texts.
