Connecting Sexual Ethics and Politics is the Second International Conference of the International Network for Sexual Ethics and Politics (INSEP): it takes place at the end of August 2012 in Ghent, Belgium
INSEP seeks to provide a critical and dynamic space for cutting edge thinking, new research and key discussions and debates about issues of sexual ethics or politics, whether conceptual and theoretical discourse, analytical studies or empirically constituted insights. INSEP sees the value in the fullest range of approaches to the study of sexual ethics and politics, including: gendered and feminist perspectives; distinctive lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and transsexual perspectives; queer perspectives; and approaches from more general positions such as liberalism, Marxism and democratic theory. The 2012 conference seeks to be an inclusive space of debate, welcoming dialogue and vigorous debate, but not sectarianism.
Further details of the conference itself and the core themes around which papers are sought can be obtained here.
Submissions for papers (300 words), panels or workshops (500 word stipulating participants) should reach us by the final deadline of 15 June 2012.
Final acceptances will be given by 22 June 2012. However, INSEP runs a rolling approval process for those who need earlier notification of acceptance for funding purposes. If you indicate this on you submission, the organizing committee will referee and give a decision of acceptance or otherwise within 14 days of submission.
For informal discussion of proposals, please contact the conference organisers.
