Judith Butler and familial influence

I stumbled across this 6-part interview with Judith Butler, gender theorist, in French and English with subtitles and a smattering of German. in the first video, Butler posits the possibility that the thesis of her key text, Gender Trouble, was influenced by her experience living with Jewish parents going through assimilation. This idea of childhood experience affecting research development is certainly something I can understand.
