Glossalalia by Julian Wolfreys
Book DescriptionAlthough alphabetically arranged, Glossalalia - An Alphabet of Critical Keywords is not a conventional glossary or dictionary. It is an agenda-setting volume which speculates on the state of theory in the twenty-first century. 26 newly commissioned essays provide distinct, original sometimes playful or unusual definitions of theoretical keywords - both unexpected terms as well as words well-established in the critical canon: Animality Biotechnologies Chora Difference Event Flirting Genetics Hypertext I Jouissance Knowledge Love Music Nation Origins Poetics Quilting Reification Schizoanalysis Tele-techno-theology Universals Visuality Wit X Yarn Zero The volume invites the reader to engage with and enjoy theory, to seek out connections and become aware of the process of critical thinking. Anyone with theoretical interests in the humanities and in the future possibilities of theory will be delighted and intrigued by this volume.

Books By Author Julian Wolfreys
Haunted Experience, Paperback (September 2016)
Uses the lenses of perception, memory and appearance to explore loss - in our experience, our imagination, in literature and film. Citing Heidegger, Derrida, Lacan, Cixous, Celan, Husserl, Woolf, Joyce, Hegel, Badiou, Rilke, Merleau-Ponty, Stockhausen and True Detective, Wolfreys offers a multi-layered unpeeling of loss in life and literature.
Derrida Wordbook, Paperback (April 2015)
While it makes no claims to being encyclopaedic in its coverage, this book seeks to accommodate the implications of Jacques Derrida's writings and thoughts, through an expository engagement with a series of words having significance throughout Derrida's text, and across the years of his publishing career.
Dickens's London, Paperback (April 2015)
Taking Walter Benjamin's Arcades Project as an inspiration, this book offers a project that opens a dialogue between phenomenology, philosophy and the Dickensian representation of the city in all its forms. It provides dual focus on methodology and the historicity of Dickensian urban consciousness.
