French Women’s Writing after May 1968
Dr Sandra Daroczi
Mon 2 October 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
The talk will focus on Monique Wittig’s work, setting her in the literary and socio-political contexts of the second half of the 20th century. Wittig was a French author, philosopher and feminist theorist and 2023 is a year that marks not only 20 years since her passing but 50 years since the publication of her seminal work, The Lesbian Body. While discussions reemerge over what gender actually means, a timely talk which will appeal to you whether you are interested in semantics or society at large.
