Post-Natural condition II: Politics of feminist performative practices

MA 01,04
CuP 01,02,07,08,09

In the seminar we will continue to examine new theoretical approaches to feminism and gender and link them to the historical predecessors. We will especially explore some theoretical and artistic practices which are not only coming from the western history of feminism, but disclosing the questions of feminism deeply embedded in the issue of globalisation, neo-liberal violence, the relationship between gender, technology and media. We will read contemporary approaches in the relation to the more historical texts to disclose the development in the feminist thought. Maria Galindo, Nina Power, Trinh T. Minh-ha, Angela Davis, Marina Gržinić, subRosa, Rosi Braidotti, Judith Halberstam are some of the authors we will read and discuss.
