Workshop: National politics and sexuality in transregional perspective

RengooThe workshop The homophobic argument. National politics and sexuality in transregional perspective of the network ReNGOO will focus on the aspect of homophobic and homophile discourses and political practices in an expressly transregional comparative framework. Furthermore it focuses on perceptions of Self and Other in Western and Eastern Europe, North America and the MENA-region (Middle East and North Africa) from a gendered perspective, including the historical and contemporary intersections between anti-Semitic and homophobic/philo-Semitic and LGBTIQ-friendly discourses.

The workshop will be held at Berlin’s Humboldt University June 18-20, 2014.

It is convened by Prof. Dr. Christina von Braun, Prof. Dr. Claudia Bruns (Humboldt University Berlin), Prof. Dr. Stefanie Schüler-Springorum (Center for Research on Antisemitism, Technical University Berlin), and Dr. Achim Rohde (Centre for Near and Middle East Studies, Philipps University Marburg).

The research network ReNGOO works towards the development of a transregional comparative scholarship concerning various ideologies of inequality in the context of identity politics in modern societies. It addresses these issues from a gendered perspective and is thus equally located in the context of comparative transregional gender studies.
