Question:

What is the use of the 'subjonctif' in French?

Inactive
Orsolya P.
Answer:

The 'subjonctif' is a verb tense with which one might familiarise themselves most easily through translation, as this verb tense is translated into English in a variety of ways. The 'subjonctif' is used in sentences where the subjects of the two clauses differ. The 'subjonctif' is triggered by verbs that convey desire, emotion, uncertainty, or doubt, by impersonal structures, and by certain connective expressions or conjunctions.

Answer:

Autobiography, works of life-writing, including works of moving-image, such as documentaries often bend genre boundaries. Autofiction has constituted a prominent part of Francophone writing in the past couple of decades. In the most contemporary strands, works such as those labelled by their author auto-theory have taken up central place in literary studies. Trans-feminist author and philosopher Paul B. Preciado is credited for coining the term in a work combining theoretical analysis following thinkers such as Michel Foucault, and autobiographical writing.

Subject: Gender Studies

Question:

Why do questions of gender and sexuality often seem linked in queer theoretical debates, or in areas of activism?

Inactive

Answer:

Many queer theorists argue that conceptions of normative binary female and male gender include attraction to the opposite gender. French Queer theorist Monique Wittig thus argues that lesbians evade cis-heteropatriarchy through their alternative relationship to men. Trans- and non-binary identifying persons further blur restrictive sexuality-related labels.
