It is here, in the third section that concludes the book, where the importance of Graff Zivin's work lies, raising the discussion of Jewishness to a completely new level. The book develops a series of thematic explorations that have previously been understudied in this field, while also making a convincing argument as to the importance of Jewishness for Latin American literary and social history.

Moreover, Graff Zivin's readings are enlivened by her sophisticated grasp of difficult theoretical debates Levinas and Derrida in particular. Thanks to her sophisticated analysis of the difficult problem of representation of alterity in Latin American literature and her novel perspective on the uses of the concepts of Jew' and Jewishness' in this body of literature, The Wandering Signifier makes an important contribution to Jewish and Latin American Studies scholarship and to the field of cultural studies in general.
Indeed, this is the first study to address the powerful symbolic presence of Jews in Latin America and the first to consider the ways in which the literary representations of Jewishness enter into productive discussions of citizenship, identity, and ultimately salutary alterity.

I am willing to predict that The Wandering Signifier will very soon be considered an indispensable book. It is accessible to a broad public interested in fields including Latin American studies, cultural studies, and Jewish studies.
Erin Graff Zivin moves subtly between the work of Zygmunt Bauman, Jorge Luis Borges, Margo Glantz, and Ricardo Piglia among many others to examine the sociopolitical implications of the many symbolic constructions of Jewishness in Latin American literature. The imaginative scholarship, narrative excellence, and wide-ranging insights make this work required reading for students in multiple fields.

Between and he was general editor of the journal diacritics. This paper will consider the relation between Borges and Derrida, two thinkers whose work has traversed, both thematically and performatively, the dangerous, murky border between literature and philosophy, and whose readers see in them—not completely without justification—fertile ground for comparison. At the same time, I will claim that such a consideration is impossible, that the premise of such a project, the foundation upon which it is built, is conceptually shaky at best and intellectually bankrupt at worst.
So, then, why should we read Borges and Derrida together?

Can we read Borges as a precursor to Derrida, or to deconstruction more broadly, as some critics would have it? Would we not do better to dwell on the sites in which such inquisitions might fail, or fall short, by proposing other inquisitions? Her research and teaching interests focus on constructions of Jewishness and marranismo in the Luso-Hispanic Atlantic, aesthetic representations of torture and interrogation, the relationship between ethics, politics, and aesthetics particularly in the context of Latin American literary and cultural studies , and the intersection of philosophy and critical theory more broadly.
