Kinsey and the Future of Female Sexuality

Thursday, September 9th, 2004
Elizabeth Grosz
7:30 pm

Knight Auditorium, Spurlock Museum

600 South Gregory Street


Event Description

Elizabeth Grosz explores Alfred C. Kinsey's researches on female sexuality, not as sociological, psychological or physiological contributions, but as part of an emerging philosophy of difference.  The relevance of Kinsey's works for feminist revisions of female sexuality has been clear since the 1960s.  However, there is much in his work that both anticipates and welcomes a more post-modern understanding of the relations between sexuality, power and knowledge.
