“The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that position be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time.” -Angela Davis

Oct 15: Testo Junkie: Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era

Testo Junkie: Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era

a roundtable discussion with Beatriz Preciado, and José Muñoz & Avital Ronell

Tuesday, October 15
6:30 to 8 pm

Beatriz Preciado, History of the Body, Gender Theory, and History of Performance, University of Paris 8

José Muñoz, Performance Studies, New York University

Avital Ronell, Comparative Literature and German, New York University

“If the reader sees this text as an uninterrupted series of philosophical reflections, accounts of hormone administration, and detailed records of sexual practices without the solutions provided by continuity, it is simply because this is the mode on which subjectivity is constructed and deconstructed.”  So concludes the Introduction to Beatriz Preciado’s Testo Junkie.  The book blurs boundaries — between high theory and diaristic self-portraiture  — and explodes disciplinary conventions in a path-breaking examination of the impact of new technologies and representational forms on the way sex, sexuality, gender, and “the” body are lived and experienced.   This forum puts author Beatriz Preciado into conversation with José Muñoz and Avital Ronell on the occasion of Testo Junkie’s first publication in English.
