Was a Renowned Literary Theorist Also a Spy?

The Chronicle of Higher Education, 6.20.18

Essay by Richard Wolin, professor of history, political science, and comparative literature at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York. Wolin addresses recent revelations exposing Julia Kristeva as a spy for the former Communist regime in Bulgaria: “The misadventures of the Tel Quel group come to mind in reviewing and assessing the recent revelations concerning Kristeva’s alleged role as an agent of communist Bulgaria’s State Security services, the Darjavna Sigournost, or DS — in essence, the Bulgarian equivalent of the KGB.”
