Critical Readings: Judith Butler - Undoing Gender (5)

Short url:

Critical Readings book club advances with Judith Butler's Undoing Gender book.

In this meeting we will read:

  • Chapter 6 'Longing for recognition' (19 pages),
  • Chapter 7 'Quandaries of the Incest Taboo' (9 pages).

It is not necessary to have read the previous chapterts to come to the meeting, neither is necessary to have read the chapters 6 and 7, although it is recommended in order to participate in the discussion.

Both chapters will be resumed and presented by usual attendants of the group, and a collective-based discussion will follow.

At the end of the meeting, we decide which chapters to read for the next meeting, additional texts, and who will present them.

The book is available in epub format here:
