Alison Horbury investigates the reprisal of the myth of Persephone - a mother-daughter plot of separation and initiation - in post-feminist television cultures where, she argues, it functions as a symptom expressing a complex around the question of sexual difference - what Lacan calls 'sexuation', where this question has been otherwise foreclosed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Professor in Television, Middlesex University, UK

"Learned, scholarly, respectful, Horbury's work is a return in the real on which the feminine question is waged. The mysteries of Eleusis stand revealed." - Tim Themi, author of Lacan's Ethics and Nietzsche's critique of Platonism, (2014)
