Glossalalia: An Alphabet of Critical Keywords

GlossalaliaJulian Wolfreys, ed.

Edinburgh University Press, 2003
ISBN 0748614354

Although alphabetically arranged, Glossalalia is not a conventional glossary or dictionary. It is an agenda-setting volume which speculates on the state of theory in the twenty-first century.

Twenty-six newly commissioned essays provide distinct, original, sometimes playful or unusual definitions of theoretical keywords – both unexpected terms as well as words well-established in the critical canon.

The volume invites the reader to engage with and enjoy theory, to seek out connections and become aware of the process of critical thinking. Anyone with theoretical interests in the humanities and in the future possibilities of theory will be delighted and intrigued by this volume.
