This book has been the single most important work I have ever read. Every single woman should read Nomadic Subjects. It is beautifully written and is a great text for catching up on the history and progression of feminism. Although it was written in 1994, it still feels incredibly topical and moving (which is a little sad to realize how little progress has been made)--but the power of the book is its positivism and encouragement. Beautiful ideas, beautiful writing. Reading this is a religious ex [...]
Fascinating combo of post-structural feminism and Deleuzian nomadism- I am beginning to think I am a nomadic feminist! I love the ways in which she writes this Ina cartographic style.
"Nomadic subjects" was my first book by Rosi Braidotti, so I was very excited to read it, but in the end I have mixed feelings. Although I meet Braidotti at many points I have several crucial issues with the book. First, I was expecting a different language. Braidotti claims to be an adept of feminism which is close to real life women's experiences.

Published in 1994 and still deeply relevant and instructive today -- as an approach not only for women's studies/feminist theory but for other types of intellectual and political constructions of the self as subject/object. Braidotti discusses high theory and foundational feminist theory in a style that is accessible and, dare I say, fun. A humorful feminist?Don't skip the last chapter, in which Braidotti brings in Janis Joplin, Patti Smith, Nina Hagen, Crass, the Au Pairs, and Laurie Anderson t [...]
my impression of this work is partial and subject to change as i've read the unrevised edition. the strength of braidotti's thinking with irigaray, deleuze and foucault. is still brilliant and is very much the brilliance here: vimeo/51895848. she is one of my favorite thinkers! in the edition i read braidotti's definition of difference differs over the collection of nomadic tergiversations spanning 1986-'93, at different points irreconcilable. i'm undecided whether or not i need to read the revi [...]
Must read for everyone who loves Bataille, Cixous, Kristeva, Lispector, Lacan, Deleuze, Derrida, Foucault. I hold this book close to my heart, its enchanting.
