Yubraj Aryal publishes article in Textual Practice


Lecturer in English, Yubraj Aryal just published the article “Affective politics and non-sovereign identity” in the journal, Textual Practice. The paper argues that 'non-sovereign' individuals can self-fashion their identities beyond the existing power relations in which they find themselves. The article is rooted in Michel Foucault’s ethical project of self-fashioning and Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s idea of ‘lines of flight’. Dr. Aryal received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2014, has been the editor of The Journal of Philosophy: A Cross-Disciplinary Inquiry, and has interviewed many notable scholars, including Richard Rorty, Anthony Appiah, Brian Massumi, Marjorie Perloff, Charles Altieri, Robert Young, Laurent Berlant and Susan Stewart. He is the editor, with Vernon Cisney and Nicolae Morar, of Between Foucault and Derrida, published by Edinburgh University Press in 2016.
