Title

Reading Group: Gut-Geographies: Queering Public Space and the Narratable Self after Feminism by Sophie Goltz and Dr Tania Roy

Description

The topic of gut-geographies is suggested to outline the relation of space, collective action, and phenomenological appearance, to the proposition of organic empathy—or the capacity of biological substrata in the body to problem-solve, “control, calculate, protect, and destroy” (Wilson 2004: 82). Following through key positions in post-gender theories of embodiment, the readings widely engage the interventions of “gut-feminism” with the wider problematics of public space and communal action, especially in urban contexts that are not directly addressed by the readings. By suggesting the capacity of bodies to affect and be affected in mutually implicated ways within the material or historical constraints of public space, the reading group invites participants to further relate the status of narrative truth-claims to those of the (neuro-)biological sciences.
