Sexuate Subjects
Sexuate Subjects: Politics, Poetics and Ethics UCL, London, 3-5 December 2010 Conference partners and collaborators: UCL Art History, French and the Slade; UCL Vice Provost (Academic) and UCL Intercultural Interactions Grand Challenge; Hofstra and Stony Brook Universities, and KTH Stockholm. This international interdisciplinary conference sought to generate new theories and practices of subjectivity – ‘sexuate subjects’ – through contemporary poetic and political research in the visual arts, humanities and social sciences. It explored how these positive ethical subjectivities for women and men are constructed through spatial, material and textual feminist poetics and politics. Over three days, it examined how sexuate subjects (people/disciplines) aid interdisciplinary responses to contemporary global crises of community conflict, social and environmental wellbeing. Sexuate Subjects focused on these issues as they are expressed in political, poetic and ethical practice in disciplines including: architecture, art, literature, modern languages, philosophy, the political and social sciences. Nine panels and invited keynote speakers examined the following themes: - environmental and social crises - sustainable ecologies - poetic communities, pedagogies, voices and bodies - the politics of bio-medicine, body-rights, family and well-being By examining these complex expressions of our physical and psychic lives through artefact, body, dialogue, image, installation and word, the event provided a platform of diverse approaches which can help us build sexuate futures for all. Such approaches aimed to contribute towards developing more nuanced understandings of the diversity of global cultures and their academic and public intersections.
