Butler's Bodies That Matter (1993) in Turkish

Cüneyt Cakirlar has been working with Zeynep Talay on the Turkish translation of Judith Butler's seminal book Bodies That Matter: On the Discursive Limits of "Sex" (1993). The translation, Bela Bedenler, has finally been published in early March this year by the Istanbul-based publishing house Pinhan. Butler's other works, including Gender Trouble (1990), The Psychic Life of Power (1997), and Precarious Life (2006), had already been translated into Turkish in previous years. In Bodies That Matter, Butler offers a groundbreaking exploration of embodiment and sexuality in Western philosophy. We hope that the Turkish translation will be as effective and inspiring to the new generation of queer scholars in the country.
