About the conference:
The 2023 Irigaray Circle Conference runs from Thursday, May 18th-Saturday, May 20th and is a three-day interdisciplinary conference devoted to scholarship and creative work on and inspired by the thought of Luce Irigaray. Irigaray’s work has influenced scholarship across multiple fields, including Philosophy, Gender Studies, Queer Theory, Trans Studies, Literary Studies, Indigenous Studies, Classics, Religious Studies, Political Theory, Linguistics, Art. Architecture, Music, Performance Studies, Legal Theory, Social Justice Work, etc. The Circle cultivates a space for honoring and interrogating the question of sexual difference by supporting the multiple research trajectories, methods, and projects inspired by Irigaray’s thought.
This year’s conference draws its theme from Irigaray’s own psychoanalytic practice as well as her pedagogy and activism and seeks to explore and imagine the ways in which her work on sexual difference is put into practice not only in academia but, also, in the classroom, the psychoanalyst’s office, the courtroom, the legislature, the street, and beyond. In keeping with the theme, many of the sessions are closed group workshops. However, there are several plenary sessions that are open to the public.
