Axes of Desire: Gender, Sexuality, & Human Rights

IRN co-sponsored the CLAGS-IRN Seminars in the City – Fall 2009 – September 14, October 5, November 2, December 2 – featured several regions including the Middle East, Caribbean, and Latin America. These were hosted in New York, and also available livestream on the web with participants in several countries watching, speaking, and/or sending in questions. The series reflects CLAGS and IRN’s shared commitment to providing a public forum for intellectual discussion and debate within and beyond the academy by connecting academics, activists, and the larger community around the world to share information and resources in sexuality studies. Since the IRN is organized by geopolitical regions, each seminar focused on questions of sexual human rights in specific regions around the world.
