Women’s Bodies: un importante convegno della Society for Women in Philosophy (Irlanda) il 21-22 Novembre

E’ il più interessante convegno del 2014 sul tema del Corpo (femminile) di genere. Oltre 40 relazioni lo affrontano da una prospettiva filosofica e sociopolitica. Tra gli argomenti delle sessioni di lavoro: la costruzione sociale delle donne, pornografia e violenza sessuale, maternità e maternità surrogata, il bel-corpo, l’approccio storico al corpo di genere, il corpo lesbico,  ecc. 21-22 novembre a Dublino. Registrazione obbligatoria. Partecipazione internazionale ‘alta’ e molte relazioni con titoli significativi. Poche le presenze italiane: Nicla Vassallo (Genova), Carlotta Cossutta (Verona), Valeria Venditti (Roma), Cristina Amoretti (Genova).

Impressionante l’assenza della psicoanalisi: solo perché è una Società di Filosofia?

Se possible, da non perdere. Rimane la malinconia per la mancanza di un equivalente italiano sia della Society che di un evento di questo tipo e portata. (enrico pozzi)
