Returning to a reading group session + discussion organized by Jo Harrison at Almanac for the new year, the central focus will be inspired by the current Adam Christensen exhibition, 'Criminal Longing 3' and refer to seminal texts written by Judith Butler to explore questions surrounding gender and identity.

This session will be centred around Butler's groundbreaking 1988 essay 'Performative Acts and Gender Constitution', where she begins a conversation proposing that gender is a social construct, and that — as an identity — it is unstable and performed, 'instituted through a stylised repetition of acts'.

We will further explore these ideas using a short extract from 'Gender Trouble' (1990) to discuss notions of a 'true' gender identity through the concept of gender parody.

Here you can download Butler's texts:

Reading ahead of this session is recommended. (However, we will also read through extracts during the session, so please join even if you don't have time to read the texts beforehand)
