Queering the politics of global sexual rights?

By Leticia Sabsay · 29 April 2013

Leticia Sabsay has published ‘Queering the politics of global sexual rights?', Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism, 13:1, pp. 80-90.  

The essay considers queer responses to the formation of sexual rights-bearing subjects, and critically analyses the notion of sexual rights on which contemporary international mainstream sexual politics is based. Through this analysis the essay argues that it is cultural translation that makes key alliances against both universalist and nationalist queer positions possible.
