"Figures of the Interval: Luce Irigaray and Film"
 Led by Caroline Godart


Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Potluck & Colloquium: 6:00 pm

195 College Ave.
New Brunswick, NJ

Caroline's paper proposes to revisit a classic of women's cinema, Jane Campion's The Piano (1993), and to explore the resonances between the movie and Luce Irigaray's concept of the interval. The latter is at once a spatial and a temporal concept, and therefore lends itself well to cinematic analysis. The Piano is driven by a formal framework that relies consistently on the opposition between nearness and distance and that echoes Irigaray’s theory. Caroline wants to argue that both the philosopher and the filmmaker develop a feminist ethics that is grounded in a similar understanding of spatiality.
