The conference "Whither Sexual Ethics and Politics?" Date: 05-11.09.2011. Site: Ghent, Belgium. Deadline: 10.06.2011
Organiser: International Network for Sexual Ethics and Politics (INSEP)
Topics: This conference seeks papers, presentations and panels focusing on conceptual and theoretical debates, cultural and political analysis and empirical studies from which conceptual, ethical and political conclusions are drawn. Whilst the organizer welcomes a wide and diverse range of papers, the organizer is particularly keen to encourage submissions on the following three themes: Sexual politics, sexual citizenship, sexual rights and sexual (in)justice; The scope and limits of legal regulations and socio-cultural change and activism as emancipatory tools; New philosophical and ethical thinking on questions of sexual morality. INSEP sees the value in the fullest range of approaches to the study of sexual ethics and politics, including: gendered and feminist perspectives; distinctive lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and transsexual perspectives; queer perspectives; and approaches from more general positions such as liberalism, Marxism and democratic theory.
