Studierendenvortragsreihe: Herzliche Einladung zum Vortrag von Ruben Heizmann am 15.07.2021
Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
die Studierenden des Instituts möchten Sie gerne auf einen Vortrag im Rahmen der Studierendenvortragsreihe hinweisen:
Am Donnerstag, den 15.07.2021 um 18:15 Uhr, findet die WebEx-Diskussion zum Thema "Women As Sharing a Genealogy (English)" von Ruben Heizmann statt.
The talk aims to present and evaluate Allison Stone's proposal to understand women as a group of people sharing a genealogy. Thereby a definition of 'women' is given that is both inclusive and politically useful. The first part of the talk focuses on Gender essentialism and its specific problems, as well as on the problems of an anti-essentialist view. In the second part, Stone's proposal is presented, and her concept of genealogy is explained with reference to Friedrich Nietzsche and Michel Foucault. By discussing possible objections, it is argued that her account can avoid problems associated with essentialism. Furthermore, it is shown how her proposal enables us to conceptualize women as a politically mobilizable group without marginalizing certain groups and experiences.
The discussion takes place on WebEx. All further information can be found here: https://svrphilosophie.wordpress.com/
