Reading Group: Becoming-Woman

On April 5th, Quiver will discuss “Becoming-Woman.”

Rather than discuss the notorious section of A Thousand Plateaus on becoming-woman, we instead consider the woman as an escapee.

Our conversation will begin with a portion of Hélène Cixous’s essay “The Laugh of the Medua.” With it we consider the practice of writing, the insurgency of the feminine, and the practice of undoing the self.

A selection on wayward lives from Saidiya Hartman’s “A Riot of Young Girls Assembled in a Riotous Manner” guides the second half of our discussion. In it, we speculate on the practices of women lived so fugitively that little of them remains in the archives outside a record of their repression.
