CTDC 2017 Conference: Politicised Sexualities and Marginalised Histories

Description

CTDC 2017 Conference: Politicised Sexualities and Marginalised Histories ( English title )


Description:

The conference will aim to address problems and challenges in relation to sexual rights in the SWANA region in particular, and the Global South in general, through scrutinising sexual identity politics and the historical development of sexual rights discourses. This one-day conference hopes to re-centre histories and presents in relation to sexuality and gender, exploring the transnational and trans-historical politics of sexual identity in the SWANA region, in an attempt to subvert the omnipresent narratives about LGBTQI people and marginalised groups from the SWANA seeking ‘safe havens’ in the Global North.
