Following a long tradition of objectification, 20th-century French feminism often sought to liberate the female body from the confines of patriarchal logos and to inscribe its rhythms in writing.

But how has the promotion of 'women's writing' in such thought and literature evolved in the years preceding and following the turn of the millennium?

What sorts of bodily questions and problems do contemporary female writers evoke?

How are traditional conceptions of the boundaries of the female body contested, exceeded or transformed?

And how do contemporary philosophical discourses correspond to the ways that literary authors conceptualise, and write, the female body?
