Luce Irigaray International Seminar Symposium

Institute for Advanced Studies, Verdon-Smith Room

University of Bristol

Royal Fort House, Clifton, Bristol BS8 1UJ

Luce Irigaray (CNRS, France) is one of the world’s most important contemporary thinkers. Her work has played an influential part in the development of feminist theoretical and Continental philosophical perspectives on difference, materiality, rhetoric, and the formation of an ‘inter-relational ethics’ between sexes, generations and cultures.  Her most recent book, In the Beginning, She Was, was published by  Bloomsbury Press in 2012.

The symposium is an opportunity for visiting researchers participating in the Luce Irigaray International Seminar to share their work with the public. Discussion will include commentary by Professor Irigaray, Leverhulme Visiting Professor to the University of Bristol, 2013-2014.

All are welcome to this free event. Please register your interest in attending by emailing Martisse Foster at
