We are very pleased to announce the eighth biennial meeting of the
International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society
(IASSCS), entitled “Naming and Framing : The Making of Sexual (In)Equality”.
This conference is co-organized by the Social Anthropology Department of
Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain.
The 2011 Conference theme focuses on the multiple ways that equality and
inequality are articulated through sexuality. The meeting will explore
diverse situations and issues of (in)equality with regard to sexuality in
the global arena, bringing together researchers, advocates, policymakers
practitioners to critically share their strategies and challenges that
inform and inspire new forms of action and thinking about sexuality.
The theme of the meeting invites dialogue and analyses of the interplay of
sexuality, sexual identity, gender, class, race, ethnicity, age,
and inequality. As well, the conference theme invites analyses placed
within the context of the state’s willingness (or reticence) to discuss and
incorporate practices, discourses, laws and public policies that
sexual rights for all men and women and promote gender equality, and
recognition of sexual diversity.
The official language of the conference is English. However, for the
time, we will have one afternoon of sessions in the language of the host
country, namely Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation. Due to the
limited space and time for presentations in Spanish, only a limited number
of abstracts will be accepted in that language.
In line with the IASSCS’ mission, the conference seeks to promote links
between researchers, academics, advocates and activists by addressing the
process of taking theory into practice, conceptualizing the meaning and
significance of advocacy at the national and community level, and
and advancing the implementation of sexual rights. We can receive
submissions in various formats : verbal presentations, posters, exhibits and
The abstract deadline is January 10th, 2011
