The Gender Trouble: Why Do Bodies Matter?

Gender and sexuality are currently under discussion. How much influence do biology and culture have? Are there more than two sexes? How important are social norms, and to what extent can we change them in order to make life more “liveable”? What is the difference between “precariousness” and “vulnerability”? What role does the materiality of the body play in political action?? These and other questions were discussed in the dialogue between Judith Butler and Fina Birulés, moderated by Marta Segarra, three of today’s foremost thinkers on gender.

Participants: Judith Butler, Fina Birulés, Marta Segarra
