Dr. Kristen Kreider will present a paper entitled 'Time, Space and Empathy: Material Poetics and the Film Image' at Sexuate Subjects: an international interdisciplinary conference seeking to generate new theories and practices of subjectivity – ‘sexuate subjects’ – through contemporary poetic and political research in the visual arts, humanities and social sciences, and with reference to Luce Irigaray’s theory of ‘sexuate difference’. The conference will explore how these positive ethical subjectivities for women and men are constructed through spatial, material and textual feminist poetics and politics. Over three days, it will examine especially how sexuate subjects (people/disciplines) aid interdisciplinary responses to contemporary global crises of community conflict, social and environmental wellbeing.
