Thinking Queer Knowledge With and Without Foucault

Michel Foucault

Séminaire / Après-Coup NYC

Friday, April 25, 2014, 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Michel Foucault’s The History of Sexuality (1976) is a paradigm for  academicians in gay and lesbian studies,  gender studies, and queer theory. Yet it and the academic knowledge it has spawned have ignored or
dismissed other forms of knowledge derived from direct political experience of sexuality recognized by  theorists such as Hocquenghem, Wittig, and de Lauretis.

MEETING PLACE: The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street(between 6th and 7th Avenues), New York City. Please ask at the front desk for the room number
