Interviewing Cixous

Helene Cixous

The recently published White Ink: Interviews on Sex, Text, and Politics includes a variety of interviews with Hélène Cixous, providing rich, new perspectives on her work and her influential ideas. The book also includes dialogues with Derrida and Foucault.

Interview topics include: feminine writing, writing and politics, race, autobiography, and painting, music, and poetic memory.

You can also watch a video of a Cixous interview (see below). (For us non-Francophones, don’t worry, the interview is in English.) In the interview Cixous discusses how the concept of intellectual has been masculinized, the idea of universalism, and more.
