Language as Hospitality in Cixous
Recalling that the Algerian Jews were gradually deprived of their mother tongue (Judeo-Arabic) during French colonization, Cixous examines instead how to write in another tongue resonating with more than one language. This language is the outcome of dispossession, but affirms the experience of cuts and separation differently. Distrusting the notion of community or nationality, she acknowledges the hospitality of language.
