Thursday 19th October, 1pm, Room B004, Edge Hill University, St Helens Rd, Ormskirk, L39 4QP
GenSex presents poet Amy McCauley, who through interactive poetry performance, image & essays, invites you to consider: Is a ‘private’ self possible? Can we speak in voices which are not in some way already inherently ‘public’? How might a writer tackle ancient and contemporary myths around ‘femaleness’, desire, sexuality and the performing body? Do we ever stop ‘performing’ (as bodily forms, forms of language, gendered forms and sexualities)?
For this event, our speaker has provided handouts for attendees, so for all those attending, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for the file. Handouts will be available in the session also.
All are welcome!
