October 29: Sexy Motherf**ker: Queering Incest & the Mother

sexy motherf**kerSexy Motherf**ker: Queering Incest & the Mother

a lecture by Amber Jamilla Musser

October 29, Thursday
6:30 to 8 pm

Amber Jamilla Musser, Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, Washington University

If homosexuality is the love that dare not speak its name, this talk argues that incest, in the form of taboo and metaphor, offers a plethora of possibilities for thinking desires, belonging, and gender. It examines the fantasies and schisms that appear when we queer our love for our parents. Beginning with an inquiry into queers’ attachment to daddy and the state, this talk positions incest at the center of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s and Judith Butler’s queer break from feminism. It then asks what it might mean to love the mother instead, and it begins to approach ways of doing so by using Audre Lorde to rethink Oedipus, lesbian feminism, and touch.
