The Research Center ADHUC and the Seminari Filosofia i Gènere will hold the 21th Thesis Laboratory on Tuesday, December 19, 2017. In this new session, the PhD student Bàrbara Ramajo Garcia will present her ongoing research for her doctoral dissertation, Desbordar el cuerpo lesbiano: sobre el "más allá" de la existencia lesbiana y sus violencias fantasmas. Taking as a point of departure the notion of spectrality elaborated by authors such as Derrida and Castle, her work analyses the synergy of two lesbian spectralities: that of the lesbian body as a social, political and poetical body -as developed by Monique Wittig- and that of the "lesbian existence" as proposed by Adrienne Rich.
