Nancy Fraser

(c) Miquel Taverna, 2012

Nancy Fraser (Baltimore, 1947) is a political expert and Henry A. and Louise Loeb Professor of Political and Social Science at the New School for Social Research in New York. Acknowledged as one of the most prominent American feminist intellectuals, she is known above all for her reflections about justice, but her works have also dealt with questions related with globalisation, cosmopolitanism, identity politics, neoliberalism, and the welfare state. Her aspiration consists of enriching the liberal democratic tradition through feminist theory, critical theory, and post-structuralism. Currently, she is a member of the Collège d’Études Mondiales in Paris entrusted with rethinking social justice in globalisation. Among her books available in translation, highlights include Iustitia Interrupta. Reflexiones críticas desde la posición «postsocialista» (Siglo del Hombre, 1997), ¿Redistribución o reconocimiento? Un debate político-filosófico, with Axel Honneth (Morata, 2006), Escalas de justicia (Herder, 2008) and Dilemas de la justicia en el siglo xxi: género y globalización (Universitat de les Illes Balears, 2011). Her latest published book, not yet translated, is Fortunes of Feminism: From State-Managed Capitalism to Neoliberal Crisis (Verso, 2013).
