Negotiating sexualized bodies in an increasingly divisive and dangerous world: solidarities of the marginalized [Commission on Global Feminisms and Queer Politics and Commission on Marginalization and Global Apartheid]
The present times are fraught with danger as almost every part of the globe is being driven towards increasing intolerance and conflict; where existing chasms are deepening and new ones coming up. How are the sexualized bodies negotiating these dangerous zones? What is the risk to sexualized bodies? How are they being exploited, ravaged or destroyed as different groups fight over territories, identities and political space? What does it mean to be a man, a woman or a transgender in Syria, Kashmir and Afghanistan; in Africa, Latin America and in Turkey? How is sexuality being attacked, deformed or reinvented under right wing governments in India, the USA and Poland? Poverty and marginalization is another threat as humans are exposed and vulnerable in the shanties, slums and roadside of the urban cities. How do the homeless and the ghetto dwellers live in the world with no security and no privacy? What are the mechanisms of solidarity that keeps them going? In this plenary/round table such questions can be debated and discussed with reference to life world experience from the field and other sources.
