Abstract

Most perspectives on the postmodern subject revolve around the issue of sexuality and its relevance in the constitution of the subject. Irrespective of the definition we give to sexuality and its related representations on the human body, the critical genealogy of the political practices shows that, in gendering, the body needs to be accompanied by a theory of the psyche. This paper will focus on the intertwinings of political practice and gender constitution and identification, in order to account for a performative stance of the “I” in subjective experience.
