You are invited to attend “The Forms of Naked Agency and Genital Cursing” by Prof. Naminata Diabate (Cornell University). This talk tracks the changing nature of genital cursing as it travels spatially, temporally, and formally. It also considers the gesture’s newly acquired form, what I call “naked agency,” as a point of departure for deliberating on the texture of the women’s and their targets’ agency. A comparison of the forms of naked agency and genital cursing carries larger implications for how form shapes theory in a world of dispersion, multiplication, and circulation.
