Aarhus Coffee Break: Sexual Liberation and the Left - 8/17/19
Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 10 AM – 12 PM UTC+02
DomenInge Lehmanns Gade, 8000 Aarhus, Denmark
Come join us for a coffee, good company, and a relaxed discussion about sexual liberation and the left. Sex and gender appear to be at the forefront of leftist activism, as well as of the conservative backlash against it. But what should the Left hope to achieve? Is sexual liberation a struggle whose time has come? Or are we 100 years too late? The readings below will provide a context for our discussion, providing different perspectives on the history of the Left's engagement with sex and gender and what that history means for us today. But don't worry: you do not need to do the readings to come join us!
- Which way forward for sexual liberation?
- Transgender liberation? A movement whose time has passed
- The case for a Marxist intersectionality: Class reductionism, chauvinism, and a critique of David Faes on transgender liberation
