TRANSDISCIPLINARITY: ANTI-HUMANISM AND GENDER STUDIES

Workshop: Transdisciplinary Problematics
Anti-Humanism and Gender Studies
17-18 May 2012, London

This two-day workshop will examine the notion of a transdisciplinary problematic, via the cases of anti-humanism and gender studies. The first day will approach theoretical anti-humanism from the standpoint of its destructive effect upon disciplinary fields in the humanities and as a radical problematisation of the discipline of philosophy in particular. The second day will focus on gender studies as a transdisciplinary problematic and on the transdisciplinary nature of the concept of gender itself. Topics will include the historical reconstruction of ‘gender’ as a boundary-crossing concept; the relation of its conceptual content to its functioning as a general concept across disciplines; the transformation of the disciplines in the humanities by ‘gender’ and gender studies; and the current productivity of ‘gender’.

From Structure to Rhizome: Transdisciplinarity in French Thought, 1945 to the Present – Histories, concepts, constructions

Friday 16 & Saturday 17 April 2010

In the final decades of the twentieth century, the great books of postwar French theory transformed study in the humanities in the Anglophone world. These texts were all, in one way or another, transdisciplinary in character.

Yet their reception has primarily taken place in an array of specific disciplinary contexts, isolated from a broader understanding of the intellectual dynamics, forms, significance and innovative potential of their transdisciplinarity itself. This conference aims to address this situation. Each speaker will reflect on the transdisciplinary functioning of a single concept in French thought since 1945, with respect to a founding text, a particular thinker or a school of thought.

Speakers:

Éric Alliez (CRMEP, Middlesex University) ‘Rhizome’

Etienne Balibar (University of Paris X/Irvine UC) ‘Structure’

Andrew Barry (Oxford University) ‘Network’

Tom Conley (Harvard University) ‘Writing’

François Cusset (University of Paris X) ‘Theory’

Patrick Guyomard (University of Paris VII) ‘Object a’

Jean-Marc Lévy-Leblond (University of Nice) ‘Science’

Alain de Libera (EPHE, Paris/University of Geneva) ‘Subject’

Peter Osborne (CRMEP, Middlesex University) ‘Transdisciplinarity’

Michèle Riot-Sarcey (University of Paris VIII) ‘History’

Stella Sandford (CRMEP, Middlesex University) ‘Sex’

£45 / £20 students – includes drinks reception, 16 April: launch of the CRMEP/AHRC website for ‘The Cahiers pour l’Analyse, 1966–1969’
