(p.146) Conclusion
The Oulipo and Modern Thought

Dennis Duncan

Oxford University Press

The conclusion points forwards from the debates of the 1960s and early 70s, suggesting that if the group is to continue to engage with the intellectual concerns of its milieu, then these will be concerns of the politics of identity. In one, sense, in co-opting Anne Garréta the group now has a member who has used constrained writing to extraordinary effect to demonstrate the inescapability of declarative binary gendering for the speaking subject in French. At the same time, as Garréta herself has pointed out, the Oulipo remains very much an old boys’ club. The chapter also looks at the critique of the Oulipo delivered by Juliana Spahr and Stephanie Young at the CalArts Oulipo conference of 2005.
