Trivia Tuesday: The Author of this Book Revolutionized the Fields of Feminist Studies, Queer Studies, and Literary Theory

Subjects of Desire, once described by Judith Butler as “my juvenilia,” examines the influence of Hegel on 20th-century French philosophy. By plotting the French reception of Hegel, Butler leads her readers to a reconsideration of the post-Hegelian tradition that is dominant in modern French thought. Butler’s career since this, her first book, has revolutionized the fields of feminist studies, queer studies, and literary theory. She is perhaps most well-known today for her theory of gender performativity.
