“New Work in Sexuality Studies”

In the introduction to Empire of Love (2006), Elizabeth Povinelli praises “contemporary sexuality studies and gender studies [that] have engaged in what we might call a politics of trespass. That have refused to sequester, to ghettoize, women’s issues, gender issues, and queer issues to a subset of social life.” However, Povinelli also looks ahead to a theoretical moment wherein sexuality studies would no longer trespass or cross over, but simply become integral as a mode of analysis. This special section, anchored by Sandra Soto’s Reading Chican@ like a Queer: The De-mastery of Desire (2010), brings together new work in sexuality studies that signals the arrival of this theoretical moment. Please email Stephanie Rosen at ssrosen at gmail.com by November 15 with your proposals or to request a list of suggested titles.
