CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - IASSCS 2011 CONFERENCE

in SPAIN, 27/10/2010

We are very pleased to announce the eighth biennial meeting of the International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society (IASSCS), entitled "Naming and Framing: The Making of Sexual (In)Equality." This conference is co-organized by the Social Anthropology Department of Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain.

The 2011 Conference theme focuses on the multiple ways that equality and inequality are articulated through sexuality. The meeting will explore diverse situations and issues of (in)equality with regard to sexuality in the global arena, bringing together researchers, advocates, policymakers and practitioners to critically share their strategies and challenges that inform and inspire new forms of action and thinking about sexuality.

 

The theme of the meeting invites dialogue and analyses of the interplay of sexuality, sexual identity, gender, class, race, ethnicity, age, citizenship and inequality. As well, the conference theme invites analyses placed within the context of the state?s willingness (or reticence) to discuss and incorporate practices, discourses, laws and public policies that acknowledge
sexual rights for all men and women and promote gender equality, and recognition of sexual diversity.

The official language of the conference is English. However, for the first time, we will have one afternoon of sessions in the language of the host country, namely Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation. Due to the limited space and time for presentations in Spanish, only a limited number of abstracts will be accepted in that language.

In line with the IASSCS' mission, the conference seeks to promote links between researchers, academics, advocates and activists by addressing the process of taking theory into practice, conceptualizing the meaning and significance of advocacy at the national and community level, and supporting and advancing the implementation of sexual rights. We can receive submissions in various formats: verbal presentations, posters, exhibits and workshop presentations.

THE ABSTRACT DEADLINE IS JANUARY 10th, 2011
