Winter term 2017/18

Gender, Theory, Critique

There are many theories and practices based on the analysis of a gendered world. Different feminist approaches agree in the basic commitment to the freedom of women, even though they differ in the details. The reference to freedom is accompanied by a critique of existing conditions and the claim to improve or change them. Is then feminist theory automatically a critical theory, and what kind of critique is at stake? What are the characteristics of gender in relation and  in conflict with other analytical categories (keyword: intersectionality)?

The seminar addresses these and other questions concerning gender, theory, and critique and welcomes all interested PhD students to participate. Within the frame of the seminar there will be a workshop with Penelope Deutscher from Northwestern University, Evanston/Chicago.

Prof. Deutscher is one of the leading scholars in twentieth-century and contemporary French Philosophy, and in gender and sexuality studies. Current projects are focused on the intersections of biopolitics, reproductive futurism, and the genealogy of gendered right claims. Together with Judith Butler, Prof. Deutscher is co-director of the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs.

Geschlecht, Theorie, Kritik

Eine Vielzahl an Theorien und Praktiken basieren heute auf der Analyse einer geschlechtlich strukturierten Welt. Feministische Ansätze sind sich darin einig, für die Freiheit von Frauen einzutreten, auch wenn darüber im Einzelnen gestritten wird. Mit der Referenz auf Freiheit verbinden sich eine Kritik an bestehenden Verhältnissen und ein Anspruch, diese Verhältnisse zum besseren hin zu verändern. Ist nun feministische Theorie automatisch eine kritische Theorie, und um welche Art und Weise der Kritik geht es? Was charakterisiert Geschlecht im Verbund, aber auch im Konflikt mit anderen analytischen Kategorien (Stichwort Intersektionalität)?

Die Veranstaltung möchte sich diesen und weiteren Fragen zu Geschlecht, Theorie und Kritik widmen und steht allen interessierten Promovierenden offen. Für einen Workshop im Rahmen dieser Veranstaltung konnte Penelope Deutscher von der Northwestern University, Evanston/Chicago gewonnen werden. Der Workshop findet auf Deutsch und Englisch statt und findet voraussichtlich am 8. Februar 2018 statt.

Prof. Deutscher ist eine der führenden Spezialistinnen der französischen Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts und der Gegenwart sowie der Geschlechter- und Sexualitätsforschung. Ihre aktuellen Projekte situieren sich am Schnittpunkt von Biopolitik, Reproduktivem Futurismus und der Genealogie von geschlechtsspezifischen Rechtsansprüchen. Zusammen mit Judith Butler leitet Deutscher das International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs.
