Studying Gender and Sexuality in Italian University: Genealogies, Challenges, Perspectives

Studies on gender and sexuality have always been carried out not only inside, but also outside the university. Moreover, today’s increasing job insecurity in intellectual carreers makes it difficult to clearly distinguish those who do research within istitutions from those who do independent research. Nevertheless it is undeniable that, even in Italy, these studies are gaining a certain degree of academic recognition, thereby provoking conflictive reactions in public opinion and scientific communities.
This conference is meant as an opportunity of discussion among university research centers and groups in the field of gender and sexuality studies. The aim of the conference is threefold: to share experiences, practices, problems and solutions; to reflect on the status of these knowledges; and to debate about possible strategies for promoting gender and sexuality studies in the Italian academia.
