This two-day digital conference aims to bring together a group of researchers, activists, and community organizers to discuss how the discourses on gender and sexuality have evolved in the Middle East and Europe amidst the rising far-right and authoritarianism. Our conference has three objectives. First to situate the actors of the far-right and authoritarianism in their respective socio-historical context in the regions and, second, building on previous research about gender and sexuality, discussing how political homophobia and anti-feminism have developed as a core ideological element of the far-right in the global and transregional framework. Finally, the conference aims to shed light on the local, regional, and global responses to homophobia and anti-feminism in the respective regions. There are significant areas where queer and feminist paradigms have established productive critique and conversations over social justice. By adopting this lens, we propose an intersectional perspective to the study of sex, sexuality, gender, and intimacy: One that builds on to the queer feminist literature(s) and theorizes the localities as well as the transregional and global entanglements.

The conference will take place in September 2021 as a two-day digital event.
