Glossalalia by Julian Wolfreys

Book Description

Although 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.
