MLA 2021 Panel: Science on the Margins: Rethinking the Global Histories of Sexology

Friday, March 6, 2020 - 4:52pm
Rovel Sequeira
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

This panel mobilizes the semantic compass of the concept “margin” to rethink the global histories of sexual science. Essentialist accounts of sexology have concentrated on its origins in the Western, primarily German, academy as a distinct “Sexualwissenschaft” or institutionalized science of sex that effected profound shifts in sexual knowledge and subjectivity. And yet sexology was often itself a marginal form of knowledge that emerged at the edges of more well-established disciplines like biomedicine, psychiatry, anthropology, zoology, anthropometry and propelled technologies of endocrinology, eugenics, and population control.

Recent scientific discoveries in climatology, animal cognition and microbiology have radically altered our conceptions of ourselves and the environment we live in, both on micro and macroscales. Zooming in on the human microbiome and out to the planetary ecosystem, or even further into infinite cosmic spaces, the sciences are revealing strange dynamics of human-nonhuman interconnectedness, doing away with the established anthropocentrism and the idea of human exceptionalism.

The Science of Sex "Itself"

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 4:12pm
Benjamin Kahan and Greta LaFleur
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 1, 2020

Over the past two decades, queer, transgender, and sexuality studies have moved away from the medical model, turning away, as Regina Kunzel puts it, “from the clinic, the couch, and the psychiatric hospital to look instead at histories of sociality, of citizenship, community, culture, politics, the state.” In this special issue, however, we want to return to the sciences of sex, including and beyond the couch, to consider how the surveying and hierarchizing energies of “science” have been put toward the production of understandings of both sexual practice and binary sexual difference, in all of their gendered and racialized dimensions.
