Durham Castle Lecture - Prof. Linda Martin Alcoff
This paper considers the larger aim of movements against sexual violence. I consider the focus on consent, and argue that this is inadequate as a way to demarcate harmful and harmless sex. I consider and criticize a trend toward libertarian approaches to sexualpractices. I develop a concept of sexual subjectivity, using the work of Foucault as well as others, to explore a more expansively pluralist, but normative approach to our sexual lives.
