Criticism exam ideas to consider
Access to power and resources
Sex in Public and Estranged Labour
Sex in Public and Gender Trouble
economy vs identity, kind of.
Sex in Public and History of Sexuality
Proliferation of identities
How categories came about and how that's manifested into this 'perverse' culture, where anything 'queer' in the unusual sense becomes queer in the gay sense
Estranged Labour and Climate of History
Subjectivity and identity
Social media and its challenges
The self as split
Estranged labour and environment: on the human, and being part of a species
Binary oppositions and their undermining
History of Sexuality and Gender Trouble
Importance of history
Climate of History and Idiom of Race
(dis)advantages of claiming 'that's just the way it is'
Marx and Climate:
everyone disconnected to the environment and thus our humanity
relate to crises today: globalisation, capitalism surpassing (in Western countries) relationship to environment, eg mass farming relates to both Marx and environmental collapse
Climate and Sex in Public
idea of freedom, enlightenment or freedom of expression
damaging to everyone, albeit climate is more intensely physically destructive
Queering everything and species-thinking: all coming together. Though more problematic with climate because of capitalism and discrimination.
History 'unmade and rewritten'
Gender Trouble and Idiom of Race
Socially constructed, no ontological status
science claims to have answers: idiom of race it's in the text, with gender it's in general scientific claims of sexual differences
caught up in power: west want to be better, more civilised, and binary of gender controls social order easier.
Foucault and the claim that it encompasses your whole identity.
