The Global South Gender and Sexuality (GS2) Collective aims to develop a multidisciplinary space for engagement with issues of gender, sexuality, and racialization through postcolonial, decolonial, and critical area studies approaches. It spotlights innovative conceptual frameworks for research on subaltern feminist, queer, and transgender pasts and presents in the Global South, while centering the politics and possibilities of studying and teaching these topics in the Global North. By foregrounding connections among communities located in diverse geographies who are experiencing ongoing forms of colonialism and imperialism, it seeks to build intellectual bridges and solidarity among scholars siloed within region-based research domains.
The GS2 Collective plans to host approximately 3 events per semester during the academic years 2023-24 and 2024-25.
