Abstract

La presente publicación tiene como objetivo fundamental dar a conocer las producciones conceptuales realizadas en el marco del proyecto de investigación “La constitución del sujeto-agente: los aportes de la filosofía de Judith Butler y su influencia actual” (11/ H.591). Por un lado, se trata de poner a disposición de la comunidad académica y público en general (tanto del ámbito nacional como internacional) los resultados logrados gracias a nuestro proyecto de investigación. De este modo intervendremos positivamente en los debates actuales sobre la problemática del sujeto y recogeremos críticas que alimenten futuras líneas de investigación. Por otro lado, prevemos que las producciones ofrecidas en esta compilación redunden en beneficio de la formación, en grado y postgrado, de los estudiantes que realizan sus trayectorias académicas en la Facultad de Humandidades y Ciencias de la Educación de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata.

Abstract

A Brief Genealogy of Jewish Republicanism: Parting Ways with Judith Butler uses the chance synchronicity of the 2013 Israeli parliamentary elections and literary theorist Judith Butler’s controversial Brooklyn College address calling for the boycotting of Israeli academic, cultural, and economic institutions as an occasion for examining possible relations between Jewishness and state-centered forms of self-governance. In an extended analysis of Butler’s Parting Ways: Jewishness and the Critique of Zionism, Tucker shows how the alignment of certain authors’ identities and ideas undergirding Butler’s analytical framework draws upon a pointedly Christian conception of belief. This Christian conception of belief structures the most familiar understandings of modern secularism, articulated most famously by John Locke in his “Letter Concerning Toleration.” Tucker reads Locke’s “Letter”’ alongside Jewish philosopher/rabbi Moses Mendelssohn’s 1783 critique of Locke, Jerusalem: Or On Religious Power and Judaism, and the Jewish tradition of the minyan, making a case for the existence of an alternative history of publicness borrowing from Jewish conceptions of communal life and the proper relations of actions and ideas. In throwing light on a genealogy of Jewish practices aimed at the deliberate creation of collectives constituted by their grappling with contingent, historical time, Tucker argues for the existence of a Jewish tradition of republicanism, of democracy. Within such a context, the Jewishness of Israel can be seen to lie first and foremost in its methods of generating a civil collective out of a diverse citizenry rather than in the identities of its individual citizens. The tradition Tucker has in mind explicitly uses an idea of ritual or “ceremonial law” to sustain within itself a tension between a heterogeneity of perspectives and interests constitutive of democratic process and the forms of unity and agreement often understood to be the desired outcome of that process. By setting forth a framework in which heterogeneity and agreement are conceived as coincident modes of political being rather than steps in a linear process, this “Jewish republicanism” frames law-making, implementation and following as forms of a single structure of ritual practice. Such a framework might provide the inspiration and authority for reconceiving some of the fundamental relations of the Zionist project

Abstract

"Judith Butler’s Gender Trouble: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity radically claimed that the sexed body is a fallacy, discursively constructed by the performance of gender. A.W. Strouse has undertaken to rewrite Butler’s classic tome into an octosyllabic poem. Inspired by the rhyming encyclopedias of the Middle Ages, Strouse transforms each of Butler’s sentences into Seussian couplets. This performative repetition of Chapter 1 of Butler’s Gender Trouble, “Subjects of Sex/Gender/Desire,” deconstructs Butler’s deconstruction. Relishing in the campiness of rhyme and meter—in the bodily pleasures of form—Strouse’s Gender Trouble Couplets, Volume 1 is an imitation for which there is no original. Gender Trouble, perhaps, was poetry all along."
