Lecture 2 (of 3) of the Priestly Lectures, by Joan Scott, Princeton

University College is pleased to present the 2014 F.E.L Priestly Lectures in the History of Ideas:

The Politics of Secularism

Joan Scott, Insitute for Advanced Studies, Princeton University

Lecture 2: Reproductive Futurism

Joan Scott’s groundbreaking work has challenged the foundations of conventional historical practice, including the nature of historical evidence and historical experience and the role of narrative in the writing of history. Broadly, the object of her work is the question of difference in history: its uses, enunciations, implementations, justifications, and transformations in the construction of social and political life. Scott’s recent books have focused on the vexed relationship of the particularity of gender to the universalizing force of democratic politics. They include Gender and the Politics of History (1988), Only Paradoxes to Offer: French Feminists and the Rights of Man (1996), Parité: Sexual Equality and the Crisis of French Universalism (2005), The Politics of the Veil (2007), and The Fantasy of Feminist History (2011).

Professor Scott will also be lecturing on 26 and 28 March at 4:30 p.m.  All events are free and open to the public, and registration is not required.  For further information, please contact University College at (416) 978-7516.
