“She thought it was the misfortune of poetry to be seldom safely enjoyed by those who enjoyed it completely; and that the strong feelings which alone could estimate it truly were the very feelings which ought to taste it but sparingly." -Jane Austen

CSGS Visiting Scholar: Natalya Lusty



CSGS Visiting Scholar: fall 2013

Natalya Lusty

Natalya Lusty is an Associate Professor in the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney, Australia. She is the author of Surrealism, Feminism, Psychoanalysis (Ashgate, 2007), Dreams and Modernity: A Cultural History (Routledge, 2013) with Helen Groth, and a forthcoming co-edited collection, Modernism and Masculinity: Literary and Cultural Transformations (Cambridge University Press, 2014). Her work examines various movements of modernity, including feminism, psychoanalysis, and the avant-garde, as well as cultures and experiences of everyday life.

Current research:

While at the CSGS Natalya will be working on a new project on “Feminist Manifestos and the Shaping of Political Modernity.” This project will rethink the history of feminism through the genre of the manifesto and to examine how women used and transformed the manifesto at key moments of social and political crisis across first, second and third wave feminism.

The project asks, what kind of counter-history of feminism emerges through the radical speech acts of its manifestos? How has the feminist manifesto both reproduced and contested the relations of power that inform the radical public sphere? If the history of feminism is often conceptualized as a generational battle, fought out between the new and the old, the now and the then, how might an understanding of the discursive and political imperatives of the manifesto disrupt this agonistic framework?

During her stay at NYU, Natalya will be developing work on DIY Feminism in relation to the Riot Grrrl movement (c1989-1996), drawing on the primary resources held in the Riot Grrrl Special Collection at the Fales Library, NYU.
