520    Differences in Common engages in the ongoing debate on 
       'community' focusing on its philosophical and political 
       aspects through a gendered perspective. It explores the 
       subversive and enriching potential of the concept of 
       community, as seen from the perspective of heterogeneity 
       and distance, and not from homogeneity and fused 
       adhesions. This theoretical reflection is, in most of the 
       essays included here, based on the analysis of literary 
       and filmic texts, which, due to their irreducible 
       singularity, teach us to think without being tied, or 
       needing to resort, to commonplaces.Philosophers such as 
       Arendt, Blanchot, Foucault, Agamben or Derrida have made 
       seminal reflections on community, often inspired by 
       contemporary historical events and sometimes questioning 
       the term itself. More recently, thinkers like Judith 
       Butler, Gayatri Spivak or Rada Ivekovic-included in this 
       volume are essays by all three-have emphasized the gender 
       bias in the debate, also problematizing the notion of 
       community. Most of the essays gathered in Differences in 
       Common conceive community not as the affirmation of 
       several properties which would unite us to other similar 
       individuals, but as the "expropriation" of ourselves 
       (Esposito), in an intimate diaspora. Community does not 
       fill the gap between subjects but places itself in this 
       gap or void. This conception stresses the subject's 
       vulnerability, a topic which is also central to this 
       volume. The body of community is thus opened by a "wound" 
       (Cixous) which exposes us to the contagion of otherness. 
       The essays collected here reflect on different topics 
       related to these issues, such as: gender and nation; 
       nationalism, internationalism, transnationalism; 
       nationalism's naturalization of citizenship and the 
       exclusion of women from citizenship; the violent 
       consequences of a gendered nation on women's bodies; 
       gendering community; 
520 8  preservation of difference(s) within the community; bodily
       vulnerability and new politics; community and mourning; 
       community and the politics of memory; fiction, historical
