Hélène Cixous, one of France’s foremost intellectuals, spoke to writer and literary critic Nicholas Royle. They considered “Judeities”, a word and notion in the plural, favoured by Jacques Derrida over the more conventional terms “Judaism” and “Jewishness”. Together, they reflected on the multiple political and poetical stakes of this neologism.
