Julia Kristeva: Säkerhetspolisen och semiotiken

Abstract [en]

Julia Kristeva is Europe’s best-known living humanist thinker, born in Bulgaria in 1941 and residing in Paris since 1965. She is a feminist, psychoanalyst and literary theorist. In the spring of 2018, she was accused of having served as an agent for the Bulgarian security service during her first years in Paris. A special state commission in Bulgaria, with the task of investigating citizens’ connections to the security service during the Communist era, has published her file, which is over four hundred pages long. 

This article examines this file in order illustrate some of the ways in which East Bloc security services operated during the Communist era. The article also aims to show how the Bulgarian security police of the time portrays Kristeva’s Bulgarian background and her intellectual work. I argue that this file can be seen as a special form of literary creation, applying in my analysis the term coined by the American scholar Cristina Vatulescu, “police aesthetics”.
