The Potentiality of Encounters: A Response to Lisa Baraitser's Maternal Encounters

Paula McCloskey, M.A.

This article is a response to Lisa Baraitser's Maternal Encounters: The Ethics of Interruption (2009). It focuses on the concept of encounter as part of an emerging subjectivity or a subjectivity in production. By putting Baraitser's maternal encounters alongside art encounters the discussion starts to open up thinking on the different potential ways for humans to be interrupted and the implications of such potential subjective and ethical awakenings in this late capitalist contemporary era.
