The term "Subaltern" is related to the hegemonic power dynamics of the world. It refers to, in a broad context, all the persons who are socially, politically, geographically and economically not included or given a position in the hegemonic power structure of the colonial set-up. Thus, "Subaltern" refers to the colonized communities around the world. Subaltern as a subject is probably the most influential in the field of Post-colonial theory. Its impact has spanned across the disciplines of history, anthropology, sociology, literary studies, feminism and women studies.
