Laura Salisbury Inaugural Lecture

This lecture analyses how the Second World War shaped, contained, and shifted embodied experiences of waiting in relation to broader ideas of lived time. The second global conflict of the twentieth century produced particular accounts of waiting as both military and civilian populations were exposed to the threat and anticipation of annihilation from the air. The lecture explores what it meant to wait under such conditions and the emergence of ideas and practices of care in both literature and in psychoanalytic thinking that worked to shape a relationship towards an unthinkable future.

Technosomata: Sexuality, Gender, Reproduction and technology

This workshop proposes to explore the ways that technology (broadly defined) produces, configures or reshapes gender and sexuality. Cosmetics, prosthetics, athletics, pharmaceutics and sexual tools or machines (e.g. dildos, mirrors, adornment: clothes, and jewellery) can all be considered in terms of enhancement technologies with a variety of aims, including longevity, and at healthier and improved appearance. They have a pervasive impact on gender, as they redefine the limits of the physical body, as well as on sexuality in terms of rewriting the script for erotic action emphasizing sexual pleasure, or assisting/preventing reproduction..
