Abstract or Description

To think of feminist generation according to sequential timelines as those represented by an inherited grid of positions is to under-evaluate the spatio-temporal nexus of transitory relations, whereby the inheritance of the past into the present may necessarily imply a break from the continuum for a novel experience of sexual difference to come. The concern here is not for feminist timelines but primarily with feminist timelines in a curving spatio-temporal continuum, the extension of sexual difference outside the logic of chronos, the becoming of sexual difference as singular events occupying determinate spatio-temporal blocs, implicating the potentiality of all experience of sexual difference into the eventuation of a complex extensive region.
