Eve Sedgwick’s profoundly supple thought surprisingly instigates both queer theory as we know it and that riposte to queer reading now called “post-critique.” Her arc was dynamic, capacious, unpredictable, and we have only barely begun trace it.
InterCcECT is delighted to host a mini-seminar on Sedgwick’s work, led by Professor Zach Samalin. Readings span the poles of her career and include “Epistemology of the Closet: Axiomatic”; “The Weather in Proust”; and “Melanie Klein and the Difference Affect Makes.” Materials available by request: interccect at gmail
