Gender identities at the end of the century

Departamento de Filología moderna - Universidad de Alcalá

(Trans)formations of Sexualities and Gender selves
in the last twenty-five years in Britain and Spain
25-27 October 1999

Convocatoria: We would like to re-examine how in the last quarter of the century European thought has undermined the assumptions of stable identities, stable bodies and stable sexual selves, and how Literature, the Media and the Arts in Britain and Spain have contributed to (or resisted) the concept of gender as a construction and performance. Papers discussing one or several of the following topics will be welcome, either from a theoretical perspective or interpreting literary or artistic works:

Revisiting theories of sex and gender Dominant discourses and the construction of gender Discussing power and sex The need of a different cultural symbolic order to define new gender identities Listening to silences, seeing erasures and crossing the gaps between experience and representation in dominant discourses Identity as narration. Constructing subjectivity and reclaiming desire, emotional life, feelings and the erotic The representation of gay and lesbian love and friendship (A selection of the papers will be published)
