DECOLONIAL EROTICS AND THE COLONIALITY OF GENDER
The Society for LGBTQ Philosophy invites abstracts for an upcoming session at the Pacific Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association on March 30-April 3, 2016.
Our theme for this session is the connection between decolonial theory and studies of sexuality and gender. We thereby hope to engage questions regarding how colonial conquest, the Atlantic slave trade, the displacement of indigenous communities, and the circulating dynamics of coloniality shape intimate and/or erotic embodied existence.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Indigenous, Black, Latina/o, Arab, Asian embodiment and erotic life
- Community identity/kinship/familial dynamics
- Spiritualities/religious practices among communities of color
- Epistemic/ontological features of race, sexuality, and gender
- LGBTQ immigrant and refugee rights
- Womanist, mujerista, feminist, queer, quare, non-binary, and transgender discourses among communities of color
- Sexual and gender dynamics of racism, colonialism, and genocide
Please send paper and/or panel abstracts of no more than 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 18, 2015. Please include names, institutional affiliations, and paper titles with all submissions.
