irigaray poster

As part of a Visiting Fellowship in the Institute of Advanced Study, Luce Irigaray--renowned philosopher, linguist, psychologist, psychoanalyst--will present a public lecture entitled "How to Give Birth to a New Human Being."

Widely recognized as one of the key influential thinkers of our times, Irigaray's work focuses on the development of a culture of sexuate and cultural difference--particularly through the construction of a feminine subjectivity--something she explores in a range of forms, from the philosophical to the scientific, the political and the poetic. The author of over thirty books translated into numerous languages, including Speculum of the Other Woman (1974), her most recent book To Be Born: Genesis of a New Human Being (2017) proposes nothing less than a new conception of being as well as a means to ensure its individual and relational development since birth.

This event is free and open to all (no registration required) and will be followed by a wine reception and book signing (limited books will be available for cash purchase at the event). Please circulate in your networks!
