Time and the working mother

Kristeva’s ‘Women’s Time’ revisited
by / RP 091 (Sep/Oct 1998) / Article

If there is one issue that occupies current debates in the media, and that is shaping British society in the last years of the century, it is the nature of time. This is arguably less to do with millennial fever than with the transformations in working practices which have, for the first time since the …

by / RP 090 (Jul/Aug 1998) / Article

ʻWe do not publish our own drafts, that is, our own mistakes, but we do sometimes publish other peopleʼs.ʼ – Louis Althusser, 1963

‘What use is Althusser?’ The question rhetorically posed on the Left Bank in 1968, as structures took to the streets, invites reactions other than the blunt rien of (some of) those who …

by , and / RP 086 (Nov/Dec 1997) / Interview

RP: How would you describe the current state of cultural studies in Britain in relation to its past?

Hall: Itʼs a question of how far back you want to go, because everybody has a narrative about this and everybodyʼs narrative is different. There was certainly something distinctive about the founding moment in the 1960s, but …

The tremor of reflection

Slavoj Žižek's Lacanian dialectics
by / RP 072 (Jul/Aug 1995) / Article

At first glance, the work of the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek seems to offer an irresistible range of attractions for theorists wishing to engage with contemporary culture, without accepting the flimsy postmodernist doxa which is often the only available gloss on it. Zizek’s thought is still strongly coloured by his Althusserian background, and …

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 …
