Politics of Unthinkable: Desire On Love, Jealousy, and the Telephone /
In this talk, Blagojević uses the notions of love and jealousy in order to point to the ways in which the western, self-possessive, self-reflexive, and self-affective subject has constructed itself; also, she will use Jean-Luc Nancy’s concept of singular being to propose a sexually differentiated yet non-oppositional concept of ‘woman’ – which nonetheless can serve as another name for the multiplicity of sexes that corresponds to the multiplicity of desires.
Jelisaveta Blagojević teaches at the Faculty of Media and Communications, Singidunum University (Belgrade) and has served as the university’s dean of academic affairs since 2006. She has also worked at the Belgrade Women’s Studies and Gender Research Center as a coordinator and lecturer since 2001.

She has taught as a visiting lecturer at universities across Southeast Europe. She has published three books: Politics of the Unthinkable: Introduction to Antifascist Life (2014); Hieroglyphs of Jealousy (2008); Zajednica onih koji nemaju zajednicu [Community Without Community], (2008), and many more book chapters and articles.
