Leticia Sabsay

Before joining the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Open University, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Freie Universität, Berlin. I completed my PhD at the University of Valencia in 2009 and until I moved to Spain, I was Assistant Professor of Communications at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. My research falls into three broad areas: critical social theory, queer and feminist theory and cultural studies. I have extensively studied Judith Butler's work and my current research interrogates the liberal ontologies of the individual and the neo-liberal trends for normalizing gender and sexual diversity within the new sexual democratic turn. I have three authored books: Dilemmas of Antiessentialism in Contemporary Feminist Theory, The Norms of Desire. Sexual Imaginary and Communications, and Sexual Borders. Urban Space, Bodies and Citizenship, all published in Spanish. 

Oecumene: Citizenship after Orientalism is funded by an European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant (Institutions, values, beliefs and behaviour ERC-AG-SH2).
