Hommage à Julia Kristeva, Paris

On April 27, Toril Moi will give one of three brief talks (in French) on the work of Julia Kristeva at Université Paris 7 – Denis Diderot. The panel has been convened by the University  to celebrate the career of Julia Kristeva on the occasion of her retirement. You can download the program for the event as a pdf. file by clicking Prog_A5.

“Feminist, Female, Feminine”

I still get quite a few requests for an essay  called “Feminist, female, feminine,” published in Catherine Belsey and Jane Moore (eds.), The Feminist Reader: Essays in Gender and the Politics of Literary Criticism (London: Macmillan; and Cambridge, Mass.: Blackwell, 1989), pp. 115-32. This essay is an edited, shorter version of an essay originally entitled “Feminist Literary Criticism,” published in Ann Jefferson and David Robey (eds.), Modern Literary Theory, 2nd edition (London: Batsford, 1986), pp. 204-21. I have now, finally, had it scanned and made it available under “Essays.” (Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to find it.)

Julia Kristeva aujourd’hui

Julia Kristeva retires from her university post at the University of Paris-Diderot at the end of this academic year. On April 27, Paris-Diderot invites admirers of Kristeva’s work to a day of intellectual festivities to mark the occasion. I attach the program (in French).
