As a member of the 'Subaltern Studies Group  ' she published a series of historical studies, literary critiques of imperialism and international feminism. She is best known for the article 'Can the Subaltern speak? Spivak's work has been translated into all the major European and Asian languages.
She also publishes and lectures in her native Bengali. Spivak often uses poststructuralist conceptual apparatus to empower cultural and philosophical examinations of western imperialism.
Also in this field she critically shows the limits especially of the French poststructuralist theories, namely Michel Foucault and his conception of power, Gilles Deleuze, Jaques Lacan and Felix Guattari. But also her 'colleagues' of postcolonial theory like Homi Bhabba, Edward Said and the 'South Asian Subaltern Studies Group' to which Spivak belonged to in its beginnings, are the centers of her attention. She always tries to overbear the limitation using the tool of Deconstruction. As Spivak permanently looks how verities are produced, she often uses deconstruction as a starting point of her writing.
Deconstruction definitely can be counted as one of her most important 'theoretical columns'. With the methodology of deconstruction Spivak tries to subvert the systems of binaries,  looking at its mechanics and excludes 'blind spots', that lay in-between the antagonistic opposition without denying subjectivity, history or truth:. It simply questions the privileging of identity so that someone is believed to have the truth.
It is not the exposure of error. It is constantly and persistently looking into how truths are produced.

In contrary, it produces constructive and critical questions - an 'alert' that unsettles any form of hegemony  including dominant discourses, from the inside. Deconstruction is used by Spivak as a way of critically re-reading the phenomena of society. She also underlines its ethical importance.
