Queering Sexual Capitalisms

11/02/2017 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Centers for Gender/Race Studies, Community Room (105)

This panel discussion will bring leading scholars around the country together for a panel to discuss how gender, sexuality, and global capitalism co-constitute different kinds of inequalities. The speakers will cover a range of areas from sex work and NAFTA to FIFA soccer and global capital networks. The panel will examine how gender relations are implicated in global processes and examine the structure between the sacred and profane. The panel will address these questions: How do we think about exchanges that are “legal” but socially disreputable? What is the relationship between sexual economies and formal markets?
