Two things, Andrea:
* can the archives be located with a "index french-feminism" command to the
majordomo thing address?
* I'd love to hear about your lecture yesterday evening at the ICA. Can you
precis it for me?

My main interest in Irigaray is her critique of Heidegger and, as Andrea
has described, it became fruitless on the Heidegger list (I think mainly
because no-one had really read her work and because of the near 100%
masculine membership of the list). I do not have the book "Oblivion of Air"
(although I have it on order from amazon) although I have reada passage or
two. Has anyone here read that work? What is the fundamental basis of her
critique of Heidegger?

Thanks. I look forward to any discussion of Irigaray.
