My research has taken a more theoretical turn the past few weeks, and thankfully I found an excellent series on ARTE France where Butler is interviewed…far more accessible than her writing for those who have yet to pick up one of her books.

As this is a French programme, the main language is French, however Butler herself speaks in English during the interviews with her and the French is in subtitles. There is a recurring theme of Butler and another woman in an art gallery, here both people speak German with the French in subtitles. I found my old school French – dragged from the recesses of god knows where – sufficed to understand most of the conversations.
