How has Judith Butler's writing contributed to thought in the Social Sciences and the Humanities? The participants in this project draw on various aspects of Butler's conceptual work and they question how it has opened up the possibilities of thought in areas of study as diverse as Theater Studies, Education, and Narrative Therapy.

In a format that demands careful listening and response, the scholars in this book interact with Butler and with her writing, and they interact with each other. Within this dynamic interactive space they take up Butler's body of work and they carry it in new and exciting directions. Their conversations and writing are, in turn, funny, exciting, surprising and moving.
