Wittgenstein and Feminism

December 2022

Nordic Wittgenstein Review, Special Issue, Guest editors Sandra Laugier, Mickaëlle Provost et Jasmin Trächtler, 2022.

“The aim of this Special Issue is to mobilize the theoretical tools and methods of Wittgenstein’s philosophy within feminist and queer studies. Focusing on Wittgenstein –in contrast to Austin, who has often been mobilized within feminist theories –seems to be helpful to underline the Wittgensteinian understanding of language, distinct from the way some poststructuralist feminisms conceive of “discourse”, ideology or the material dimensions of language.”
