Lecture: “Practice Feminist Phenomenology: The Case of Shame”.

The lecture will be engaged with the theme of shame framed much in terms of phenomenological practice. Bonnie Mann shows what it means to practice feminist phenomenology, and how Simone de Beauvoir practiced feminist phenomenology and transformed phenomenology in the process. She will discuss why other versions of phenomenology fail to capture gendered experience (criticizing Steinbock and to some extent Zahavi) and how Beauvoir’s phenomenology makes it possible to give an account of gendered shame.
