Sexuality, Health and Human Rights TONIGHT!


Sexuality, Health and Human Rights

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

7-9 PM

The Graduate Center

Skylight Room (Room 9100)


Sonia CorrĂȘa, Coordinator of Sexuality Policy Watch, Brazilian Interdisciplinary AIDS Association, Rio de Janeiro

Richard Parker, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences, Columbia University

Rosalind Petchesky, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, Hunter College & the Graduate Center, CUNY

Join the authors to celebrate the publication of their new book – Sexuality, Health and Human Rights (Routledge, London and New York, August 2008). This ground breaking work provides a critical analysis of shifting theoretical perspectives and activist strategies regarding sexual politics and their larger geopolitical context in the twenty-first century. Long in the making, the book surveys the "Global 'Sex' Wars" in the shadow of both religious resurgence and political conservatism; new research agendas in the face of biomedical discourses and HIV/AIDS; and "The Promises and Limits of Sexual Rights," both from within international LGBTQI and feminist human rights activism and beyond. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.

All CLAGS events, which are free and open to the public, are co-sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Studies Concentration in Lesbian and Gay/Queer Studies.
