Imagine there's no woman : ethics and sublimation by Joan Copjec( )

29 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 1,863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the link between feminism and Lacan's ethics of sublimation by focusing on artistic texts - the logic of Antigone's disobedience of a edit of the state; the controversial silhouettes of the young black artist, Kara Walker; the Untitled Film Stills of Cindy Sherman and the final gesture of the mother toward her daughter in "Stella Dallas". In the second half, Copjec examines the superegoic underside of ethics : the concept of radical evil originally proposed by Kant relating the arguments to artistic texts including Pasolini's Salò ; the film noir classic 'Laura' ; and the Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination
Political concepts : a critical lexicon by Adi Ophir( )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deciding what is and what is not political is a fraught, perhaps intractably opaque matter. Just who decides the question; on what grounds; to what ends--these seem like properly political questions themselves. Deciding what is political and what is not can serve to contain and restrain struggles, make existing power relations at once self-evident and opaque, and blur the possibility of reimagining them differently. Political Concepts seeks to revive our common political vocabulary--both everyday and academic--and to do so critically.

Read my desire : Lacan against the historicists by Joan Copjec( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Read My Desire, Joan Copjec stages a confrontation between the theories of Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault, protagonists of two powerful modern discourses--psychoanalysis and historicism. Ordinarily, these discourses only cross paths long enough for historicists to charge psychoanalysis with an indifference to history, but here psychoanalysis, via Lacan, goes on the offensive. Refusing to cede historicity to the historicists, Copjec makes a case for the superiority of Lacan's explanation of historical processes and generative principles. Her goal is to inspire a new kind of cultural critique, one that is 'literate in desire', and capable of interpreting what is unsaid in the manifold operations of culture"--Page 4 of cover

Giving ground : the politics of propinquity( Book )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is prompted by two phenomena whose paradoxical convergence is seen by some to be altering the experience of urban relations and city planning. On the one hand, forces of globalization push towards conditions of homogenization and deterritorialization, while on the other, a surging politics of identity barricades various groups behind particular claims and ignites violent persecutions. The covert relations between these two phenomena is the focus of this volume of essays. The contributors seek to address a number of broad questions, including: what is the role and limit of urban space in the expression of group and individual rights and desires?; do democratic social relations require spatial propinquity?; what, if any, are the characteristics of democratic urban space?; and what role does the individuality of cities play in the production of political culture?
