To Have or Not to Have Children?
The video streaming of the event can be followed on the festival website.
The decision to have a child is among the most disputed problems faced by the new generation of women, especially feminists. Why do women still choose to have children – what is the female desire? Following Freud, Julia Kristeva and Shoshana Felman tried to find an answer to this question; while in her book Why Have Children? (2012), Christine Overall proposed the burden of proof be reversed – why only ask women without children and not women with children to give their reasons, too? The round table will discuss both the theoretical concepts as well as the practical circumstances, juxtaposing different perspectives.
