Kinsey and the Future of Female Sexuality

A MillerComm lecture by Elizabeth Grosz
Department of Women's and Gender Studies, Rutgers University

Elizabeth Grosz explores Alfred C. Kinsey's researches on female sexuality, not as sociological, psychological or physiological contributions, but as part of an emerging philosophy of difference. The relevance of Kinsey's work for feminist revisions of female sexuality has been clear since the 1960s. However, there is much in his work that both anticipates and welcomes a more post-modern understanding of the relations between sexuality, power, and knowledge.
