Taking a Stroll with Judith Butler

Judith Butler is an inspiration to me. She offers some of the most devastating critiques of our modernist approach to…pretty much anything, but particularly  to gender.

I had hoped to use Butler a bit in my work on Mormon conceptions of gender. However, Taylor Petrey of Kalamazoo College has already done an amazing job along those lines with his article Toward a Post-Heterosexual Mormon Theology in the Winter 2011 Dialogue. 

Today, I would like to share with you a segment from the documentary Examined Life: Philosophy in The Streets featuring Butler and Sunaura Taylor. They address the intersection of gender and disability. I will be sharing addition clips from this film in coming weeks.

Enjoy.
