IX IASSCS CONFERENCE: SEX AND THE MARKETPLACE WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?”  

in WORLD, 11/11/2012

The ninth biennial meeting of the International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society (IASSCS) is entitled “Sex and the Marketplace: What’s Love got to do with it?” and will take place from 28th to 31st August 2013 in Buenos Aires-Argentina. This conference is co-organized by the Study Group on Sexualities (GES for its initials in Spanish), Institute Gino Germani, School of Social Sciences, University of Buenos Aires (UBA), Argentina and hosted by Mario Pecheny.

The main focus of the upcoming IASSCS International Conference will be the increasing commodification of social and sexual relationships, in both sexual/erotic and emotional dimensions. The commodification of sexuality, in turn, calls for new attention to the political economy of the body, analysis of the market value of bodies and of the activities in which those bodies are involved, and of the multiple markets and marketplaces in which genders, sexualities, health and rights are produced and reproduced.

The abstract deadline is January 10, 2013. Guidelines for submission can be obtained from the conference website www.iasscs.org/2013conference
