Chicana/o Subjectivity and the Politics of Identity traces the influence of Hegel’s theory of recognition on different literary representations of Chicano/a subjectivity, demonstrating how the identity thinking characteristic of liberal-humanist ideologies is unwillingly reinforced even in subjects that are represented as rebelling against this tradition. Conversely, alternative representations that redefine universality as founded on non-identity, exemplified in Alain Badiou’s theorization of the void, are also examined. This book calls for a return to the anti-humanist philosophy of psychoanalysis and Marxism, challenging conventional notions of identity politics by uncovering the false universalities and ideologically defined differences that such a politics promotes.

About the Author:

Carlos Gallego is an associate professor of English at St. Olaf College. His work has appeared in academic journals such as Biography, Aztlán, Cultural Critique and Western Humanities Review. He is currently finishing a book examining popular representations of psychopathology in American culture.

Review:

"In arguments that are as noteworthy for their stylistic elegance as for their command of theory, Carlos Gallego convincingly demonstrates how the ideological tensions inherent in Chicano/a politics originated with the contradictions of the liberal subject. Chicana/o Subjectivity and the Politics of Identity poses the most important challenge to the organizing premises of identity politics yet written."
--Donald Pease, director of the Dartmouth Futures of American Studies Institute

"Chicana/o Subjectivity and the Politics of Identity is one of the most theoretically sophisticated studies ever published on Chicano literature and culture. Drawing equally on the critical traditions of Marxism and psychoanalysis, Carlos Gallego challenges readers to rethink methods of literary interpretation based on ideologically driven theories of subjectivity. In dialectical fashion, he stands the liberal humanism of cultural identity politics on its head. Impressive!"--Marcial González, author of Chicano Novels and the Politics of Form: Race, Class, and Reification
