The Centre Dona i Literatura and the Institut d'Humanitats - CCCB are organizing the symposium "Polítiques de les emocions: Diàlegs des del gènere i la sexualitat", coordinated by Marta Font (Centre Dona i Literatura), Katarzyna Paszkiewicz and María Teresa Vera Rojas (Universitat de Barcelona). The symposium proposes a dialogue around the "affective turn" in order to reflect on how emotions are instrumental in the normalization, but also in the dismantling of gender and sexuality. Furthermore, it will discuss how emotions might help rethink the ways in which power structures operate, not only in the regulation of intimacy, but also in the forces that configure social and intersubjective relationships. Keynote speakers include Hélène Cixous, who will talk about "The call of literature"; Javier Moscoso (CSIC), who will address the modern medicalization of passions; and Marta Segarra (Centre Dona i Literatura), who will reflect on emotions and boundaries of the human community. Also participating in this symposium are several researchers from the Centre Dona i Literatura, as well as Elena Luisa Delgado (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Director of the Centro de Estudios California-Illinois at the Universitat de Barcelona), Katarzyna Moszczyńska (Uniwersytet Warszawski) and Montse Romaní (researcher and cultural producer), amongst others. This event is part of the research project "Literature and Communities: A Gendered Approach".
