Gender Studies Centre invites all to a Workshop "Luce Irigaray: The Ethics of Sexual Difference" led by dr Katarzyna Szopa
Gender Studies Centre is delighted to invite both students and staff to a workshop led by Katarzyna Szopa, Ph.D. The event will be held at 5 PM on Wednesday, December 14th, in room 4.63. The workshop will be devoted to the evolution of Luce Irigaray’s thought, including her most recent writings, with regard to sexual difference. A thorough insight into Irigaray’s concepts will serve as a background for rethinking her theory in the context of contemporary feminist studies, in the times when the French cultural feminism seems to be long after its heyday.

CORPUS HISTORICUS: THE BODY IN/OF HISTORY
Sosnowiec, Poland, June 30th‒July 1st 2017
CALL FOR PAPERS
The significance of the body in the context of historical narratives has been paramount for the understanding of the contemporary human condition and of the past by which it has been shaped. Our perception of the body and the bodily, seen as both the object and the subject in and of history, has influenced our current understanding of both individual and collective narratives of the past, since, in the words of Donna McCormack, “[f]lesh is woven into history as both the bloody deaths necessary to achieve the desired goals and the skin on which it has become possible to write these new foundational narratives.”
