        Who Sings the Nation-State?: Language, Politics, Belonging

        Judith Butler and Gayatri Spivak

        ISBN 9781905422579

      1. Here Butler and Spivak, two of the most important voices in theory today, engage in a conversation about the impact of globalization on nationality and the role of the nation-state vis-à-vis global issues such as migration. They argue that all these conditions create a delinkage between ‘state’ and ‘nation,’ and touch upon concrete contemporary political issues today such as the Palestinian conflict.
