Theory and Practice: Transnational Conversations on Gender and Sexuality—Colonialism, Sex, DiseaseLearn More and Register
This session will explore the complex ways in which understandings of health, disease, and contagion have been inextricable from anxieties around race and sex, and the sex of the “other,” in particular. By doing so, we will contextualize the current pandemic and trace its pre-history to earlier moments of cultural anxiety around race, sex, disease, and contagion.
