Irigaray first at Leeds

The first conference dedicated to the work of renowned French philosopher, Luce Irigaray, will be held at the University from June 22-24. The event, organised by the centre for culture, analysis, history and theory (CentreCATH) is attracting participants from around the world, including Mexico, Finland, Italy, Ireland, France, the USA and Belgium.

A feminist philosopher, linguist and practising analyst, Irigaray studied with Lacan, but disagreed with his views on women’s sexuality. Much of her work argues against the masculine gender-based idea of subjectivity which Irigaray believes prevents women’s adequate representation within existing symbolic systems. She will be speaking at the conference on ‘Being two, how many eyes have we?’ and ‘Approaching the Other as Other’, as well as co-chairing the roundtable discussions.

For further information, see the CentreCATH website.
