I’m posting to pass along the Luce Irigaray text–“Divine Women”--that we have scheduled for Tuesday’s class, and also to suggest a short response approach for Tuesday too.
It’s maybe worth noting that Irigaray’s relatively short essay includes a set of short subsections touching on a variety of topics, from vague reference to her then recent work on ‘elemental passions’ and Nietzsche, to folk tales about water maidens, and eventually coming around to an intriguing reading of the 19th century German philosopher, Ludwig Feuerbach.
(While this could very well be true of other pieces too, it occurs to me to say) It’s probably worth reading all the way through before settling on a point of engagement.
With respect to developing a short response, I’d like to suggest exploring of a point of comparison on some key term or concept you see in Irigaray with analogous or similar thoughts from another course author.
An example that comes to mind might be the question of “love” that appears in the first section of Hardt & Negri [reading for 3/17] and again now in Irigaray, both in ways that perhaps depart a bit from conventional approaches to such matters, although each in his or her own way.
See if you can situate that term in each work to bring some clarity of meaning to it [. . . briefly explain how you understand that author invoking that term and idea].
Also try to put these respective uses in dialogue, comparison or contrast with each other.
If ‘love’ doesn’t do it for you, maybe choose another featured term or idea from Irigaray that has perhaps shown up meaningfully with another author we’ve read and explore it in discussion, comparison/contrast purposes. . .
