Irigaray Circle

The Luce Irigaray Circle promotes and supports research on or inspired by the philosophy of Luce Irigaray. Comprising faculty, students, and scholars from a variety of disciplines, the Circle meets once a year, usually in September. During this annual conference, scholars in philosophy, literature, political theory, art, architecture, psychoanalysis, religion, history, sociology, or bioethics share original work that reflects on or is influenced by the philosophy of Luce Irigaray.

The Irigaray Circle was established at Stony Brook University in 2006 by Sabrina Hom, Serene Khader, and Mary C. Rawlinson, and is the first philosophical society devoted to the work of a woman philospher. Irigaray's writings not only provide a revolutionary re-reading of the history of philosophy, but also address urgent contemporary questions regarding our social and material infrastructures, such as environmental degradation, political and social violence, or cultural conflict.

Currently, the conference and other activities of the Irigaray Circle are supported by Stony Brook University and Hofstra University. For more information, please visit the Irigaray Circle website.
