Here Versus There: Beyond Comparison in Queer and Sexuality politics, Maynooth, Ireland

In sexual and gender politics, the Global North can be seen as ‘won’ and ‘sorted’, in contrast to a Global South that needs support to achieve Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and other sexual/gendered rights.

This has specific effects both in places such as Ireland and the UK, where the politicisation of sexual and gendered lives moves ‘elsewhere’, and also for these ‘elsewheres’ marked as ‘unsafe’, ‘unfriendly’ and ‘backward’.  This conference will discuss both the creation of the binaries of here/there, Global North/Global South in terms of sexual and gender politics, legalities and geographies.
