Normativity, power, and gender: Reply to critics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


In this paper, I respond to the critiques of my book, The Politics of Our Selves: Power, Autonomy, and Gender in Contemporary Critical Theory, made by Nikolas Kompridis, Paul Patton, Allison Weir and Moira Gatens. My response is organized around three overlapping themes that are raised in these four astute papers: a defence of my account of normativity, of my reading of Foucault's conception of power, and of my analysis of gender subordination/identity.
