The African Centre for Migration & Society will hold an afternoon seminar entitled 'Governing Morality: Sexuality, Gender and Migration', which will present new in-depth research from South Africa and Europe on the multiple intersections of sexuality and gender within different forms of migration.
While migration studies have devoted much attention to the economic causes of migration, gender and especially sexuality have frequently been overlooked.
The seminar will address the following issues: the role of gender and sexuality in the decision to migrate; the ways in which gender and sexuality structure processes of migration; the transformations of migrants’ sexual and gender subjectivities throughout migration; and the contrastive representations of migrants’ sexuality in the countries of arrival.
Date: Wednesday 25 May 2016
Time: 1:00 to 4.30 pm
Venue: ACMS Seminar Room, Room 2163, South East Wing, Second Floor, Senate House, East Campus, Wits University
RSVP by 23 May: firstname.lastname@example.org
