Judith Butler Intro
Butler was born February 24, 1956 in Cleveland, Ohio. She earned a PhD in Philosophy from Yale in 1984 and now works at UC Berkeley in Rhetoric and Comparative Literature. Butler describes herself as gay/woman/philosopher/anti-Zionist American Jew.
In Butler’s work, we’ll see the influences of several major philosophers including Heidegger, Foucault, Derrida, Kristeva, Lacan, Irigary, and others. Butler is associated with third-wave feminism, social constructivism, and often employs psychoanalytic literary analysis in making her claims.
