    The Regulation of Gender in Menopause Theory.Sylvie Gambaudo - 2017 - Topoi 36 (3):549-559.
    ‘The regulation of gender in menopause theory’ offers a critical commentary on some key theories of menopause experience. It aims to show that the theorisation of menopause keeps to the same epistemic and ideological lines as hegemonic understandings of gender identity. Narratives of menopause has become one of the means by which one can learn to cite women’s gender correctly. In reverse, relating menopause experience against the grain of established narratives is becoming the means by which one may resist epistemic (...)

  3. French Feminism Vs Anglo-American Feminism: A Reconstruction.Sylvie A. Gambaudo - 2007 - European Journal of Women's Studies 14 (2):93-108.
    This article opens with the questioning of a now established scholarly category, `French feminism'. It proposes that theoretical and polemical understandings of `French feminism' have been founded on an opposition to its counterpart, `Anglo-American feminism'. The measure of this opposition has been defined mostly as geographical, linguistic and cultural. But underneath such constructions often lies the old sameness vs difference debate that has captivated feminism since the suffragettes. The article argues for a less oppositional and less discounting definition of the (...)

    Is There Such a Thing as “Woman Writing”?: Julia Kristeva, Judith Butler and Writing as Gendered Experience.Sylvie Gambaudo - 2017 - Angelaki 22 (1):23-33.
    The article revisits the idea that writing may be gendered and asks whether we can define what a “woman writing” practice might be. We do this through a comparative study of the work of Julia Kristeva and Judith Butler. Both have expressed reservations about, even objected to, the essentializing of gender and therefore of writing as a woman. They have, however, provided us with useful tools to define what a non-essentialist understanding of “woman” might entail. The article proposes to do (...)

  5. Julia Kristeva, ‘Woman’s Primary Homosexuality’ and Homophobia.Sylvie Gambaudo - 2013 - European Journal of Women's Studies 20 (1):8-20.
    This article offers a critical reading of what Julia Kristeva calls ‘woman’s primary homosexuality’ and discusses homophobia in Kristeva’s work. If we are to draw conclusions on the merits and limitations of Kristeva’s theories of sexuality, homophobia needs to be assessed within the aesthetic and ethical contexts that typify Kristeva’s overall oeuvre. The article shows that we can apply Kristeva’s semiotic/symbolic model of signification to sexuality and argues for the construction of ‘primary homosexuality’ as the manifestation of resistance to authorized (...)

    Kristeva, Ethics and Intellectual Practice.Sylvie Gambaudo - 2014 - Text Matters - a Journal of Literature, Theory and Culture 4 (4):145-160.
    The aim of this article is to revisit the work of the French philosopher Julia Kristeva and ask what place we might give her conceptual framework today. I will focus on one key aspect of Kristeva’s work, sexual difference, as that which ties most, if not all, aspects of Kristeva’s work. I am hoping to present a concise, yet wide-ranging view on Kristeva’s critical contribution to the fields of politics and ethics. My objective will be threefold. First, I will present (...)
