What’s Wrong With ‘All Lives Matter’?
By GEORGE YANCY and JUDITH BUTLER | JANUARY 12, 2015
This is the fifth in a series of interviews with philosophers on race that I am conducting for The Stone. This week’s conversation is with Judith Butler, Maxine Elliot Professor in the department of comparative literature and the program of critical theory at the University of California, Berkeley. She is the author of numerous influential books, including “Dispossession: The Performative in the Political,” which she co-authored with Athena Athanasiou. She will publish a book on public assemblies with Harvard University Press this year. — George Yancy
Judith Butler is also the author of Giving An Account of Oneself (Fordham University Press) and her forthcoming book, Senses of the Subject (Fordham University Press) publishes in March 2015.
