Fragments of the Uni-versatile Subject

H. Rakes, Center Research Fellow

Monday, April 9, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

In the U.S., flexibility and versatility are often praised as positive skills, qualities to cultivate and admire. Yet flexibility is a central feature and cultural consequence of neoliberal economics and globalization. Do we become more or less accountable to each other as the universal subject becomes the uni-versatile?

H. Rakes is Assistant Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Queer Studies at OSU. Their research areas include queer theory, queer of color critique, disability studies, trans studies, and women of color feminisms. H’s work has been published in Disability Studies Quarterly, the collection Why Race and Gender Still Matter, The American Philosophical Association Newsletter on Feminism and Philosophy, and Feminist Perspectives on Orange is the New Black: Thirteen Critical Essays.
