Crunching the Core: Critical Moves

April 15, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

We will continue our collective exercises by crunching moves associated with critiques of identity. We will meet on Zoom on Friday, April 15th at 10:00am-11:30am EST.  We are thrilled that the conversation will be started by two great commentators, Sarah Riley Case (McGill, Faculty of Law), and Karen Engle (the University of Texas at Austin, School of Law), who will guide us through our move(s), before opening to a wider discussion among all attendees.

Discussion Questions: In preparing for the first session, we ask that you consider the following questions:

  • Based on the texts, what is the critical move?
  • How has this critical move been used in different times, places and contexts?
  • What does the move uncover?

Excerpts: This week we will read selections from the following texts:

  • Monique Wittig, “One is Not Born a Women” (1981), selections
