In celebration of her Leverhulme Professorship at the Gender Institute, Sonia Corrêa explores some of the paradoxes at the centre of sexual rights theory and politics. What challenges are presented by the intersections between Development Studies and Sexuality Studies, each with their very different theories, histories and practices of knowledge? What issues are raised by seeking to synthesise postcolonial and de-colonial perspectives with Human Rights and Citizenship frameworks? How might we theorise questions of the complexity of subjectivity in ways amenable to social justice projects globally?
Sonia Corrêa is Leverhulme Visiting Professor at LSE, Associate of the Brazilian Interdisciplinary AIDS Association, and Co-Chair of Sexuality Policy Watch.
Clare Hemmings is Professor of Feminist Theory and Director of the Gender Institute.
