Reading group reflections

Posted on | February 5, 2012 | 4 Comments

Here is an open thread for people wanting to continue or join the discussion from this week’s Queer Thinking group. Our readings were:

Annamarie Jagose “Feminism’s Queer Theory,” Feminism and Psychology 19.2 (2009): 157-74.

Annamarie Jagose “Couterfeit Pleasures: Fake Orgasm and Queer Agency,” Textual Practice 24.3 (2010): 517-39.

Sara Ahmed “Sexual Orientations” in Queer Phenomenology, Duke UP (2006).

Feel free to jump in with thoughts and reflections. I will post the coming week’s readings separately.

NB: The discussion can happen through “comments” (firstly by clicking on the comment link below the title of this post). Or if you have longer reflections I can post them as a separate entry on your behalf.

    Shy? Too busy? Hmm… Unfortunately my brain and RSI arms aren’t up to organising all this and summarising and provoking further talking… it’s a shame not to hear more thoughts 🙁

    Maybe next week?!

    Hey Mel,
    You have my apologies for not contributing to this week’s discussion. At the moment just snowed under with my own PhD work and new house hiccups. Hopefully once all settles down though I’ll be in more of a space to contribute. Thanks for the time & effort to set this up, hopefully we can get a bit of a discussion going next week!

    I read but then decide not to write. One day I will be more confident of the words coming out of my head.

    Also neck deep in my studies and unable to contribute to the reading group but would you please be able to shoot me a copy of the Jagose “Couterfeit Pleasures: Fake Orgasm and Queer Agency” article?
