    Bodily Self-Awareness in French Phenomenology.Maxime Doyon & Maren Wehrle - 2022 - In Adrian J. T. Alsmith & Andrea Serino (eds.), The Routledge Handbook of Bodily Awareness. Routledge.
    Despite all controversies that might otherwise divide them, most phenomenologists agree that consciousness entails some form of self-consciousness. In fact, they go even further, as they virtually all agree on the necessity of fleshing out this insight in bodily terms: from the phenomenological point of view, self-consciousness is primarily experienced as a form of bodily self-consciousness (or self-awareness). Following Edmund Husserl's insight that the lived body (Leib), i.e. the body as it is subjectively felt or experienced, must necessarily be presupposed (...)

  2. Intersex Athletes: Do We Need A Gender Police In Professional Sports?Maren Behrensen - 2010 - IWM Junior Visiting Fellows' Conferences XXIX.

    Passing Bodies: Are Out Intersexuals Queer?Maren Behrensen - 2012 - In Kelby Harrison & Dennis R. Cooley (eds.), Passing/Out: Sexual Identity Veiled and Revealed. Routledge.
    In this essay I attempt to answer two related questions: 1) Is intersexuality a queer identity? 2) Compared to other queer identities, are passing and outing fundamentally different for intersexuals? My answer to the first question is a qualified “yes,” my answer to the second question will be a qualified “no.” My argument proceeds as follows: I present two reasons to think that intersexuality is not a queer identity, and two reasons to think that passing and outing are fundamentally different (...)
