Her books, including The Dialectics of Seeing: Walter Benjamin and the Arcades Project (MIT, 1989) and Dreamworld and Catastrophe: The Passing of Mass Utopia in East and West (MIT, 2000), have been translated into many languages. Most recently, in Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History (Pittsburgh, 2009), she has completed her defense of the political possibilities of universalism, and in Thinking Past Terror: Islamism and Critical Theory on the Left (Verso, 2003), she began a project on the complexities of Islamism, modern and ancient, as a discourse of political opposition.
