Wishful theory and sexual politics

by / RP 103 (Sep/Oct 2000) / Article

Across the last two or three decades identity and desire have been ʻtheorizedʼ relentlessly.

Luce Irigaray and the Female Imaginary

Speaking as a Woman
by / RP 043 (Summer 1986) / Article

Although Luce Irigaray’s name is beginning to be come more familiar in England, her work has not, for the most part, been translated, so that non-French- speaking readers have had to confine themselves to the odd bits and pieces – the translation of an interview in Ideology and Consciousness (1977), a few excerpts …
