This book cuts across important debates in cultural studies, literary criticism, politics, sociology, and anthropology. Meyda Yegenoglu brings together different theoretical strands in the debates regarding immigration, from Jacques Lacanâ€™s psychoanalytic understanding of the subject formation, to Zygmunt Baumanâ€™s notion of the stranger, to Etienne Balibarâ€™s reading of Hanna Arendtâ€™s notion of ‘right to have rights,” and to Antonio Negriâ€™s concept of the constituent and constitutive power.
Meyda Yegenoglu is a Professor of Sociology at the Middle East Technical University.
