The writing of Luce Irigaray has had significant impact upon the fields of philosophy, psychoanalysis, feminism and theology for over 3 decades. Her most recent work has returned to some of the most ancient myths and narratives of western culture. Her creative re-readings pose crucial questions about contemporary articulations of identity, nationhood, ‘multiculturalism’ and belonging.
This is a free event and no tickets are required. Early arrival is advised as the lecture will begin promptly at 6pm. It will be followed by a drinks reception in the National Grid room.
This lecture has been made possible by the combined generosity of the Departments of English and Philosophy, the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender and the Rethinking Identities and Cultures seminar series. More information may be sought from Emma Francis at firstname.lastname@example.org
