Ambiguities of Aids policy
Sexualidades # 13 launched at the IASSCS website. In this issue, anthropologist Claudia Cunha addresses the ambiguities and contradictions of Aids policies in relation to the sexuality of youth living with HIV/Aids.
What’s missing?
Men’s involvement in caregiving has too often been missing from public policies, from systematic data collection and research, and from efforts to promote women’s empowerment. This first ever State of the World’s Fathers report brings together key international research findings related to men’s participation in caregiving; in maternal and child health and in violence prevention.
Sexuality, Health and Society
This new issue of Sexuality, Health and Society explores, from multiple perspectives and using different methods, the field delineated by the complex implications of the concepts of biopolitics and thanatopolitics. In other words, they focus on the unsettling centrality of death (or of letting die) within the framework of a device designed to increase life (or, at least, certain lives).
Sexualidades: new issue
In the article “Debasements and Post-foundations,” Blas Radi (UBA) makes an against-the-grain reading of Preciados project in Testo junkie. The paper revises the use of “bio” and “tecno/trans” in that text, and discusses the queer construction of a trans subject and a trans community paradoxically devoid of trans people.
Sexuality, Health and Society - Latin American Journal 19
The articles of this issue present various explorations and offer fragments of a new kaleidoscopic image of bodies, sexualities, and identities. Each brings new possibilities to understand the complex relations constituting those elements in mutual relation, under the impact of the profound contemporary transformations they are undergoing.
International ASSHH Conference
