January 15, 2020

Plays on Gendered and Sexual CitizenshipPlays on Gendered and Sexual CitizenshipClare Hemmings, Professor of Feminist Theory at the London School of Economics and Political Science, will introduce a new body of work that explores how gender and sexuality are (and have become) central to citizenship. Hemmings will sketch out a range of real and imagined theatrical scenes, drawing on family stories, contradictory memories, and social histories to depict gendered and sexual encounters. She seeks to cast gendered and sexual politics and practices precisely as scenes that variously hyperbolize, repeat, engage or even transform the histories we inherit.
