Desiring Just Economies
Sexuality is implicit in economic processes: ways of organizing sexuality influence economic processes; conversely, current global economic processes constitute specific sexual identities and practices that collaborate in relations of exploitation, domination, and subjectivation.
The conference ‘Desiring Just Economies / Just Economies of Desire’ proposes to focus on the notion of desire as a tool to explore economy’s sexual dimension as much as the economic dimension of sexuality. It recognizes that desire sustains current economies, but also carries the potential for inciting new forms of understanding and doing economy. Drawing on Queer Theory, which maintains that desire can be envisioned beyond heteronormative restrictions, it will address the question of justice. In particular, it will ask whether the pursuit of economic and sexual justice can be made to coincide when economy is queered by desire.
