This study looks at post-colonial theory as a frame of discourse developed by theoreticians beginning in the last quarter of the twentieth century. It sees the ideas of post-colonialism as ideas based on the concept of representation as the quintessentially political act, the central concept introduced by Edward Said in his work Orientalism. However, the Indian critic Homi Bhabha developed other concepts through his critique of Said, such as hybridity, mimicry, cultural difference and 'third space.' The last critique, the issue of 'third space,' generated a great deal of criticism, but it remains among the most important of Bhabha's ideas. It is to this concept that the current study turns.
