IV European Geographies of Sexualities Conference

Following the previous Geographies of Sexualities conferences in Brussels (2011), Lisbon (2013) and Rome (2015), the 2017 conference in Barcelona will explore the ways in which sexualities are lived and framed relationally, in intersection with other identities and at a variety of social and spatial scales. This conference will convene scholars, professionals and activists across disciplines and geographical contexts, who hold an interest in co-creating a space for open debate and discussion.

The multiple ways we experience, perceive and tell our sexualities is shaped by our gender, class, ethnicity, origin, age, religion and (dis)abilities, among others. Originally inspired by queer theory, the field of geographies of sexualities has deeply engaged with unpacking the diverse ways we are influenced by and (re)produce social position(alitie)s and categories. In fact as acknowledged by Michael Brown, “there is a steadfast consensus that for geographies of sexuality to be truly queer they cannot focus exclusively on sexuality per se, but must also consider its connections with other dimensions of identity”
