05mar4:00 pm6:00 pmSexuality, Disability, and Aging: Queer Temporalities of the Phallus with Jane Gallop


Event Details

This talk discusses  adult-onset disability, middle-aging, and sexuality. The project brings together crip theory, feminist aging studies, queer temporality, psychoanalysis, and anecdotal theory. It considers how disability that begins in midlife and/or the entrance to middle age are lived as a threat to one’s sexuality and one’s gender, but also how these perspectives can supply us with alternative models of sexual temporality

Co-Sponsored by: the Center for the Study of Social Difference, the Heyman Center for the Humanities, the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, the Department of English and Comparative Literature, the Department of French, and the Maison Francaise
