New edition of ‘Nomadic Subjects: Embodiment and Sexual Difference in Contemporary Feminist Theory’

 

A renewed and revised edition of ‘Nomadic Subjects: Embodiment and Sexual Difference in Contemporary Feminist Theory’ (Columbia University Press, 2011) is now available at the book stores. Over the past fifteen years, Nomadic Subjects has guided the discourse in continental philosophy and feminist theory. Exploring the constitution of contemporary subjectivity, especially the concept of difference within European philosophy and political theory, Rosi Braidotti introduced avenues for thinking freely, if not positively, about difference, affirmation, and the nomadic subject. This thoroughly revised and expanded new edition retains all but two of Braidotti's original essays, including her investigations into epistemology's relation to the "woman question;" feminism and biomedical ethics; European feminism; and the possible relations between American feminism and European politics and philosophy. A new piece integrates more deeply into modern democratic thought Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the "becoming-minoritarian," and a chapter on methodology explains Braidotti's methods while also engaging with her critics. A new introduction muses on Braidotti's legacy, and the book's textual references are updated throughout.

Book is available for ordering at Columbia University Press.
