Abstract

Abstract:

This essay approaches the question of Women in Theory by considering the infrastructural work of writing (including citational practices and uses of metaphor) and how one might write about infrastructure and undervalued functions such as carrying and containing. Zoë Sofia’s essay “Container Technologies” (2000) is a central reference point: at issue is also the gendering of metaphors and how they bear or carry certain figurations of the feminine.
