Feminist Emergency – International Conference

Panel 10:

Sexual difference in the new millennium

The idea of sexual difference has long haunted feminist debates about the oppression of women, and been at the centre of Western feminism’s engagement with psychoanalysis. Today some would question the universality of the concept and argue that it has been made redundant by new forms of sexual being and self-definition, while others consider that sexual difference still decisively lays down in the human mind the lines of inequality between women and men. In this panel Juliet Jacques, Catherine Malabou, Juliet Mitchell, and Jacqueline Rose will discuss how to think about sexual difference, conceptually and politically, in the new millennium.
