Dear colleagues,

The Warwick Workshop for Interdisciplinary German Studies is delighted to welcome Ina Linge next week. Please see below for the rest of this year's programme. All welcome!

Wednesday 14 November, 5-7pm, Humanities Building H2.44

Ina Linge (Exeter): The Potency of the Butterfly: Sexual Nature in German Sexology and Performance Art after 1900

This talk explores how ideas about ‘sexual nature’ were co-constructed by German sexological discourses and artistic productions after 1900. Drawing on literature and science studies and queer and feminist theoretical approaches to nature and non-human animals, the talk investigates the work of the German-Jewish sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld and his interest in butterflies, both as model organisms for scientific study and as artistic representations in the form of the Butterfly Dance, pioneered by the American dancer Loïe Fuller (1862 – 1928) and adapted by the Welsh aristocrat Henry Cyril Paget (1875 – 1905), the 5th Marquis of Anglesey. Following Fuller’s and Paget’s performances of the Butterfly Dance, this talk investigates how both performances explore concepts of sexual nature through the figure of the butterfly (or moth). I argue that both performances express a version of sexual nature that does not offer a pastoral vision of naturalised sexuality, but instead show an alternative vision of sexual nature, one that is transgressive, disturbing and perverse. Finally, I argue that this competing vision of sexual nature influences Magnus Hirschfeld’s sexological work, which turns towards butterfly experiment to understand natural sexual variation.
