Dr Rina Arya - Abject Visions: Powers of Horror in Art and Visual Culture

The latest book of Dr Rina Arya, Reader in Visual Communication is to be published by Manchester University Press in May. 

This volume brings together leading international scholars to debate the continuing importance and relevance of the concept of abjection for the interpretation of modern and contemporary culture. This interdisciplinary collection includes important new essays that draw on the work of Georges Bataille, Judith Butler, Julia Kristeva and other key critical thinkers to provide innovative readings of works of art, film, theatre and literature. The clear and accessible essays in this volume extend the existing literature on abjection in exciting new ways to demonstrate the enduring richness of the concept.

Rina has edited this book with Nicholas Chare, Associate Professor of Art History in the Department of History of Art and Film Studies at the Université de Montréal
