This is my tentative reading list for my summer direct readings course on sexuality, gender and queer theory. It kind of makes me feel on the verge of orgasm.

-Foucault, Michel. The History of Sexuality. Vols. 1-3 (Vintage)
-Haraway, Donna. Selections from Modest-witness @ Second-millennium. FemaleMan-Meets-OncoMouse: Feminism and Technoscience (Routledge).
-Irigaray, Luce. Key Writings (Continuum) and The Irigaray Reader (Blackwell), which include selections from To Speak is Never Neutral; An Ethics of Sexual Difference, This Sex Which Is Not One, and Speculum of the Other Woman.
-Lacan, Jacques. Selections from On Feminine Sexuality, The Limits of Love and Knowledge: Book XX: Encore 1972-1973 (Norton).
-Parisi, Luciana. Abstract Sex: Philosophy, Bio-Technology and the Mutations of Desire (Continuum)
-Rose, Jacqueline. Sexuality in the Field of Vision (Verso)
-Short, Sue. Cyborg Cinema and Contemporary Subjectivity (Palgrave Macmillan)

Add some Judith Butler in there for good measure. Not sure what texts yet.
I am leaving the internet for a while. Maybe, hopefully. It is making me more anxious than I need right now. Not that any one cares. But that is okay with me. I am 74% happy.
