“Theories in Gender and Sexuality: Objects, Ideas, Institutions” foregrounds new works in feminist thinking which circumvent and resist stale modes of teaching,
learning and knowing difference and “the woman question.” Our aim is to interrogate the normative directionality of feminist “waves” and additive and intersectional
models of suturing gender and sexuality to minoritarian politics. We will conceptualize feminism as relational to studies of affect, object oriented ontology, animality,
feminist science, and aesthetics.
