PhD programme in Human Sciences - 34° ciclo (October 1, 2018 - September 30, 2021)

Doctorate research program
The research project aims to investigate the idea of a queer critique by centering, first, on the work and thought of French philosopher Michel Foucault; second, on how U.S. scholars Judith Butler and Eve K. Sedgwick understand the practice of queer criticism; and third, on such new streams in queer theories as "post-critique" and a queer critique "without antinormativity," which put the status and relevance of (queer) criticism today into question. The picture of queer criticism provided throughout the research is one where the philosophical, the political, and the ethical cannot be squarely isolated from one another, nor can they be considered apart from the public engagement and cultural investment of all critical enterprises. This exploration of queer critique and its "discontents" aims not only to provide a comprehensive overview of how critique has been thought of and practiced by queer intellectuals, but also to shed light on how the practice itself is being (and ought to be) reconsidered vis-à-vis the current attacks on gender studies and queer knowledges.
