Deconstructing Sexual Difference: Helene Cixous's Mole

A talk by Marta Segarra

Date: Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM
Building: Caroline Richardson Building, Anna Many Lounge, 2nd Floor
Location: uptown campus

Marta Segarra is Professor of French literature and feminist theory at the University of Barcelona, Director of the UB Center for Women and Literature, and coordinator for the UNESCO chair Women, Development, Culture at the same university. She is currently a Visiting Professor at Cornell. 

In this talk, Professor Segarra will discuss the work of Helene Cixous.

Hélène Cixous is widely known as the author of  texts that oppose the most widespread assumptions on sexual difference. However, Cixous also deconstructs the boundaries between species, giving a very special place to animals in her oeuvre.The point which will be elaborated in this presentation is that a particular animal, the mole —which Cixous reads through Shakespeare, Kafka and Derrida— embodies the spectral presence of sexual difference.


A reception will follow the talk.
