Avital Ronell b. Her work embraces a synergistic mix of approaches—deconstructive, psychoanalytic, post feminist—and contributes to an array of disciplinary fields, including philosophy, literary theory, media studies, cultural studies, and political theory. In the early s her translations helped to introduce her teacher Jacques Derrida to the American academy, and his profound influence remains palpable in her texts; Nietzsche, Freud, Heidegger, Kafka, and Lacan are other consistent influences and interlocutors.

This performative style, in other words, is for Ronell an ethico-political practice. This article could not possibly offer a comprehensive portrait of Avital Ronell and her work. Its aim is instead to spotlight some of her most significant books and essays, along with a handful of helpful secondary sources and significant scholarly responses and engagements.

Fighting Theory

International interest in the work of Avital Ronell has expressed itself in reviews, articles, essays, and dissertations. For Fighting Theory, psychoanalyst and philosopher Anne Dufourmantelle conducted twelve interviews with Ronell, each focused on a key topic in one of Ronell's books or on a set of issues that run throughout her work. What do philosophy and literary studies have to learn from each other? How does Ronell place her work within gender studies? What does psychoanalysis have to contribute to contemporary thought? What propels one in our day to Nietzsche, Derrida, Nancy, Bataille, and other philosophical writers?

Urbana: University of Illinois Press, And apparently, it is a profession she has recently assumed again, giving seven performances in at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. During that same year, moreover, a theatrical adaptation of The Telephone Book by Ariana Reines appeared off-Broadway to considerable acclaim, showing that even her more scholarly books were potential scripts for performances. Can comparable renditions of more recent works like Stupidity and The Test Drive be far behind?
