Abstract

jats:titleAbstract</jats:title>jats:pThis essay addresses the problem of the sexed and gendered subject of genealogy, and the binary central to the fixing of male agents in the self‐narration of disciplines in genealogy. Feminist and womanist theories are considered for their strategies of repair, such as the retrieval of women erased from genealogy, the repositioning of women as transgressive subjects from an hermeneutical perspective, and the task of changing the imaginary around human agency and action. This discussion opens the door to a genderealogical repair on the basis of Schleiermacher's account of singularity as transcendentally fixed, yet relationally constituted in communities of researchers that are open to new constellations in the production of knowledge.</jats:p>
