Dear Curious Souls,
I'm excited for our upcoming workshop on Michel Foucault's The History of Sexuality, Vol. 1 in November, 2018. The text analyzes the complicated workings of sex and power, and famously argues that sexual identities are not natural categories, but social constructions. It has become a classic in feminist theory, gender studies, and queer theory, and it is an essential text for understanding the workings of power in modern societies. I'm excited for what we might do with Foucualt's theory of power to help us understand current discussions surrounding the #MeToo movement, the Kavanaugh hearings, and movements to opt out of gender and sexuality binaries altogether.
