Pratiques de Soi et Performance de Genre : la construction des sujets politiques entre Pouvoir et Autonomie. Une lecture croisée de Michel Foucault et Judith Butler

Abstract : One is not born an autonomous subject, but becomes one. According to Foucault, subjectivity begins with the invention of what he called the Ethic of the Care of the Self. This is the starting point for the Self to create a form of resistance and opposition to any form of subjection. At the same time, it allows him to creating original forms of power relations. But who, when, how and under which conditions does a subject become autonomous? Mobilizing gender performance in order to answer this question means to turn into a problem the binary and western conceiving of gender, as well as the uses of this concept. Butler argues that speech act opposed to gender performativity is a subversive one. And yet, if this is an individual act, how can we re-construct the personal gender performance in such a way as to produce a plural political subject?
