- Project description
Starting from the hypothesis developed by Monique Wittig in The Straight Mind (1992) according to which women who deny the societal and patriarchal straitjacket can no longer be considered as such, it seems interesting to question the gendered identity of these writers. This question is all the more necessary as these authors turn to the writings of themselves through which they seek a response to their identity crisis. These intimate writings should allow us to define a common aesthetic, which we propose to call «non-binary», according to the term used in sociology, particularly in Judith Butler’s Gender trouble (1990).
