love as transcendence and transgression; these are but a few of love's =
manifestations and transformations addressed in/through Carter's work. =
This collection is interested in addressing issues of form as well as =
context/content (Carter's preoccupation with myth, language, and the =

addressed through them) and to engage with love as a theoretical and =
political space in contemporary theory, a space where political action =
can take place.=20
