Anne Quema Publishes

Anne Quéma has just published Power and Legitimacy: Law, Culture, and Literature (University of Toronto Press, 2015). Drawing on the theoretical insights of Judith Butler and Pierre Bourdieu, Anne Quéma demonstrates the effect of symbolic violence on the creation of social and political legitimacy. Examining modern jurisprudence theory, statutory law, and the family within the modern Gothic novel, Quéma shows how the forms and effects of political power transform as one shifts from discourse to discourse. For a peek at the book, go to
