University Scholarship in Humanities in the second half of the twentieth century is marked by two movements often working in tandem. The intellectual ferment in many of the disciplines in humanities is caused by the cross-disciplinary interface between critical theories that tend to collapse the ideological boundaries between disciplines. The second movement is concerned with the evaporation of spatial boundaries themselves that has created a radically new space in the aftermath of colonialism which goes under the broad rubric of post-colonialism. The resurgence of competing deconstructive approaches incorporating feminism, post-colonialism, cultural studies and postmodernism has radically de-familiarised the educational establishment’s ambience since the 1960’s. Publications like After Theory, Post-Theory, The Death of Criticism, The Death of Theory with their provocative titles seem to ring the death knell of theory but is it really the ‘the end of aura of theory’ or do we agree with Anita Desai when she says that “Nothing’s over ever”. This work includes new ideas/thoughts on Deconstruction which, we hope, would help the critics and the scholars get better understanding of this contentious area.
