Synopsis

This book offers a critique of power feminism using the critical theories of Theodor Adorno and Jacques Derrida. It counters a triumphalist reading of female empowerment using the negative, parergonal philosophies of these two authors and advocates listening to the sufferer rather than celebrating the triumphalism of the reigning neoliberal order.

Mary Caputi is professor of political theory at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), where she has taught since 1995. Her research interests are in the areas of contemporary political thought, feminism, critical theory, postcolonial scholarship, and cultural studies. Her books include A Kinder, Gentler America: Melancholia and the Mythical 1950s (University of Minnesota Press, 2005) and Voluptuous Yearnings: A Feminist Theory of the Obscene (Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, 1994). She is also the author of numerous articles. In addition to the current book project addressing empowerment in Third Wave feminism, she is also a co-editor and contributor to a forthcoming volume, Derrida and the Future of the Liberal Arts (Continuum, 2013), that analyzes the philosophy of Jacques Derrida in light of the crisis in higher education.
