Paul A. Taylor, IJŽS General Editor;
This special issue of IJŽS is centred upon a lecture that Slavoj Žižek gave on 10 March 2009 at the Howard Assembly Room, in Leeds, United Kingdom. The title of the lecture was “Brunhilde’s Act, or, why was it so difficult for Wagner to find a proper ending for his Twilight of the Gods?” and its presentation was followed by a question and answer session chaired by Prof. Derek B. Scott, Professor of Critical Musicology at the University of Leeds. IJŽS is pleased to present a video transcript of the lecture.
