This panel is organized around the notion of how sexuality could be reimagined through translation. More closely, it tries to look at the transformative potential of translation and language in deconstructing and constructing bodies and sexuality, in particular how the engagement of translating past sexualities could shape our present understanding in reorganizing sexual identities and the conditions of being. Papers that examine the intersection of sexuality, identity, language and power are welcome. Abstract and 50-word bio by May 30.
