(en) Britain, Leeds, Anarchism & Sexuality: ethics, relationships and power Conference 4 November 2006 Leeds

Date Sun, 27 Aug 2006 21:52:48 +0300


Sponsored by the Specialist Group for the Study of Anarchism http://www.sgsa.org.uk
Anarchism offers a tremendous body of knowledge and practice
challenging the legitimacy of coercion, domination and rigid social
hierarchies. Sexuality is a realm of social life all too frequently
characterised by (or produced through) hierarchy. Both in theoretical
writing and other forms of social action, anarchist traditions are
rarely acknowledged for their potential in addressing issues of
sexuality. Likewise, in much of the anarchist tradition, sexuality has
been and continues to be all too frequently marginalised. But exciting
things happen in the margins!

The invitation for papers resulted in an unexpected response and we
are able to offer a packed day including six sessions covering a
diverse range of topics. But, you can see for yourself. The full
programme with abstracts is now available online at the conference
website - http://anarchist-studies.org.uk/conference/

Please note: while this is clearly an 'intellectual' event, we aim for
the conference to be accessible and engaging to a wider audience than
many conferences held in universities. Folk who want to think, talk
and play with ideas about anarchism and sexuality are all most welcome
to attend!

To register for the event, please send the following items -

* a cheque payable to be University of Leeds for £25 if waged and £5
if low waged, unwaged or otherwise skint
* your e-mail address (or postal address if you don't really do email)
* tell us whether you are happy to be subscribed to the conference
discussion email list
* any dietary requirements
* if you would appreciate having the conference be child friendly.
Ideally, we do not wish to exclude parents and are happy to see if we
can work something out with those of you who may like to bring along
children.
