Fran Bigman (Visiting Researcher, Keio University)

" Challenging Binaries, Working with Paradoxes: Feminist Studies Today"

Binaries collapse everything into a set of opposing terms: things are black or white, either or. Feminist thought has long targeted binaries as a damaging and reductive way of thinking. As Helene Cixous pointed out, binaries such as sun/moon and male/female are actually hierarchies, as the first term dominates the second. Even though Jacques Derrida went on to argue for the subversive power of the second term, since "male" could not exist without "female", the fact remains that the two create a closed-off system. The moon is everything the sun is not, and vice versa: there are no alternatives. Paradoxes, on the other hand, are open-ended and productive. In a paradox,something can be both/and instead of either/or. In this talk, I will explore the roles of binaries and paradoxes in feminist studies, using both literary and sociological work on reproduction as case studies, including work on infertility, egg freezing, and my own work on abortion in literature.

International Workshop : Intellectuals in the Age of World Literature

Date & Time : 12th December, 2015 (Sat) 15:00 - 18:00
Media : English & Japanese
Place : Meeting Room, 3/F LS/CGE Building, East Campus, Hitotsubashi University (access)
Reservation : Not required

Most literary-critical programs aim for precision. Their terms, neologisms and fighting words are finely honed and differentiated. In an economy of scarcity, market niches and scholarly turf battles depend on such differentiations. But in seeming defiance of the (modernist?) drive for precision comes the 21st-century shambling, baggy creature of "world literature." Is there anything new to world literature? There might be a "planetary system" where all literatures are connected as Franco Moretti argues, but this does not necessarily mean the emergence of a new world, and of new forms of empathy across literary texts and national literatures. What can be the place of the intellectual/scholar in this planetary system?

Starting with these questions, Anne Mcknight will discuss Ruth Ozeki's novel My Year of Meats as a stabilizer to engage discussion about ways that relations between these localized discussions may be symptoms of something besides failure to be total, or cynical paths to monumentality. This presentation will be followed by comments on world literature by Asako Nakai. Flavio Rizzo will then return us to our discussion on the role of the intellectual in this planetary system by taking the case of aphasia in Pier Paolo Pasolini's political writings.
