Worlding Sexual Difference
ACLA Conference. Harvard University, March 17-24
Organizer: Rachel Greenspan, Duke University (rachel.greenspan@duke.edu)

Worlding and sexual difference are generative forces that imply a process of appearance and concealment. For Martin Heidegger, worlding is the process by which something becomes unconcealed through its passing from earth to world. This aesthetic and phenomenological passing is constituted by strife. For Luce Irigaray, sexual difference is that which remains concealed through patriarchy. For psychoanalysis, sexual difference responds to the specular logic of sameness and is produced by the resolution of the castration complex. Elizabeth Grosz, on the other hand, understands sexual difference as irreducible to all humans insofar as human reproduction is only possible through the encounter of two gametes. In this sense, as a process of differentiation, it allows the constitution of all other differences. Accused of essentialism, naturalism, and biologism, sexual difference has been defined as a universal, a priori category of the real whereas race, class, and ethnicity, for instance, are classifications of the real which rest upon such a priori. Through the lens of psychoanalysis, phenomenology, and feminist theory: how can we think worlding in relation to sexual difference? Can we speak of sexual difference’s worlding and of the worlding of sexual difference? If so, what worlds are revealed or concealed through it? With what kind of ontologies and socialities does sexual difference and worlding provide us? How does sexual difference travel the world both as a theory and as a universal?
