Reading Group: Cixous on Feminine Writing

20 Jun

cixousREADING GROUP:

PCPN is excited about our summer session Queer Futures?. Here we will both engage with foundational texts of queer theory and also cutting edge queer thinking around the questions of biopolitics, futurity, and utopia. Don’t miss our meetings (almost) every Tuesday evening (8:00pm) at the Bloomfield Crazy Mocha.

This week:

  • 06/20: Hélèn Cixous, “Sorties: Out and Out: attacks | ways out | forays”

Pdfs of the readings can be found: HERE

Please bring either a digital or hard copy of the text with you to the discussion.

Time: 8:00pm-10:00pm
Location: Bloomfield Crazy Mocha (4525 Liberty Ave).

As a reminder, even though we have moved to thematic groups, there is no expectation that people participate in every week, so even if you can’t commit to the whole section, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.
