The politics of researching sexual and gender minorities

LawTransform and the research group on Right, Democracy and Welfare welcome you to a joint seminar on the politics of researching sexual and gender minorities with Pierre Brouard, Deputy Director, The Centre for Sexualities, AIDS and Gender, at the University of Pretoria.

Adopting a critical sexualities lens, Brouard will discuss his latest research, on the  politics of terminology and language, the challenges of agency and ethics, and the complexities of erotic justice. Brouard points to the importance of reflexivity and dignity when researching sexual and gender minorities.

After Brouard’s introduction, there will be a conversation with Randi Gressgård, Professor, Centre for Women’s and Gender Research, University of Bergen.  Henriette Aasen, Professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Bergen, will chair the seminar.
