Beyond Borders: Mapping Sexualities and the Sexualisation of Spaces

International Conference - May 6 and 7, 2021

Institut d’Études Transtextuelles et Transculturelles (IETT)

Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3

 

This conference will examine the relationship between the notions of boundaries and sexuality from an interdisciplinary, transnational and transcultural perspective. In particular, it aims to map the ways in which space determines sexualities and sexual practices, and to understand, in turn, how sex structures and limits the spaces in which we live, and how we relate to them.

Futures of Queer Reproduction (NEMLA, March 2021)

Northeast MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

As José Esteban Muñoz has argued, the antirelational or antisocial thesis—the polemic against reproduction, the insistence that the figure of the child serves only to promise a collective future that thwarts and forecloses anything not assimilable to heteronormativity—fails to account for modes of futurity that are already legible now, particularly in aesthetic objects that serve as “maps” of concrete utopian thinking. Such maps, historically relational and collectively forged, open spaces for thinking about a future that is not yet here—but also help us locate elements of the utopian that are already present.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

As we progress deeper and deeper into an age of data abundance, as what Simon Rogers describes a phenomenon of a “time in which we are all surrounded by data” with continued access to it, we are at the heart of a process of self-digitization, datafication, and online existence. Our move into cyberspaces and our dependence on digital platforms for information, communication, congregation, and self-design necessitate the crucial intervention of the Humanities as a discipline and a human-centered approach to understand what it means to be human in the digital age.
