Symptomatic Redness: Haider’s “Mistaken Identity” pt. 2

Jan 12th, 2019 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared


Symptomatic Redness is a podcast about political economy and historical analysis hosted by C. Derick Varn and Amogh Sahu and this week's podcast features the second half of a discussion of Asad Haider's book "Mistaken Identity."

Here's a blurb from Judith Butler for Haider's book:

“Asad Haider renews the critique of identity politics for the contemporary Left. Drawing on the work of British cultural studies, black feminism, and theories of the subject (and subjection), Haider writes in an open and persuasive prose to show how identity is always partial and ambivalent, deflecting from the larger racial ideologies while reproducing its terms. This is a fresh and timely book, thoughtful and provocative.” – Judith Butler, author of Gender Trouble and Frames of War
