European colonialism is a historical event of the distant past; however, Europe is still a reference point for social, cultural, and political debates. Gayatri Spivak in her essay 'Three Women's Texts and a Critique of Imperialism' argues that Eurocentrism presents 'Third Worlds as distant cultures, exploited but with rich intact literary heritages waiting to be recovered, interpreted, and curricularized' (Spivak, p. 243). This information retrieval approach makes dialogue between so-called 'Third World' and the west difficult, especially in terms of gender politics. The western concept of 'sisterhood' and 'common oppression' are thus problematic for women of colour, appropriating their experiences and ignoring the history of race and colonisation.

In the history of ideas, psychoanalysis has often been understood as a Victorian, European discourse that, like other modern knowledge projects, expanded along an imperial trajectory, exporting its universalizing theory of the subject to South Asia, Australia, North Africa, and throughout the Americas. At the same time, however, the transnational diffusion of psychoanalysis has historically been driven by political strife and exile from European fascism, Soviet socialism, North African colonialism, and South American dictatorship.
