Description

These original essays explore how the concept of revolution permeates and unifies Julia Kristeva's body of work by tracing its trajectory from her early engagement with the Tel Quel group, through her preoccupation in the 1980s with abjection, melancholia, and love, to her latest work. Some of the leading voices in Kristeva scholarship examine her reevaluation of the concept of revolt in the context of the changing cultural and political conditions in the West; the questions of the stranger, race, and nation; her reflections on narrative, public spaces, and collectivity in the context of her engagement with Hannah Arendt's work; her development and refinement of the notions of abjection, melancholia, and narcissism in her ongoing interrogation of aesthetics; as well as her contribution to film theory. Focused primarily on Kristeva's newest work--much of it only recently translated into English--this book breaks new ground in Kristeva scholarship.

Review quote

"The volume as a whole makes clear not only why Kristeva is a continuing resource for feminist thinking about sexual difference, but also how/why she provides a resource for theorizing about difference more generally and what Sara Ahmed calls the 'politics of strangeness.' It goes some way toward addressing the lack of critical scholarship on Kristeva's more recent concerns."
