S14: 'helenecixous'

A special issue on the imperishable work of Hélène Cixous. Our inspiration comes from a neologism, pronounced by a young girl (Jean-Michel Rabaté’s daughter), which has evolved into a verb: to helenecixous.

An hecessity, an ixious nexus of sound and sense, Cixous escapes definition, writing us into reading differently, hearing through her words the invisible “Voice that causes writing”. Can we imagine reading her? Yes, certes, she retorts, because “there is always a letter” and these 12 letters, helenecixous, ne cesse pas de ne pas s’ixcrire.

Edited by Jean-Michel Rabaté and Sigi Jöttkandt. Abstracts due 1 April, 2023; Essay deadline: 31 August, 2023. Inquiries to Sigi Jöttkandt [sjottkandt at gmail.com].
