Imagining Sexual Freedom: Bodies, Subjects and the Political

Monday, 16 September 2013 (All day) - Friday, 20 September 2013 (All day)
Istanbul Center of Columbia University

Leticia Sabsay presents her paper at the 'Rethinking Vulnerability and Resistance: Feminism & Social Change' Workshop in Istanbul.

The paper bears on the tensions posed by the conversion of gender and sexual struggles into claims for rights for conceiving political subjectivity. This inquiry includes questions of ‘sexual epistemologies’ among others, but on this occasion,Leticia focuses her attention on the re-articulation of the sovereign liberal subject that forms the basis for any politics that is thought in the terms of rights-claims. In so doing, she consider what other kinds of political agency are possible beyond the ‘subject of rights’ form?
