La chair des mots – Exploring Rancière’s thinking of the body

To understand the political uses of bodies it seems necessary to think of the basic relation between words and things. Political questions cannot be set apart from epistemological questions. Not following Foucault, but Rancière, we would like to discuss latter’s analysis of representation from his work La chair des mots. The aim of this presentation is to highlight Rancière’s notion of literature as a keyword to think of politics. As he says throughout his works “man is a political animal by being a literary animal”. Our main goal here, therefore, is to explore this literality as a political force, as a way to think of a body and its political uses.
