Research project

Intimacy on the Move: Histories of Mobility and Sexuality since the Nineteenth Century

This project has received funding via the EUI Research Council call 2021.

How mobility shapes sexual and gendered subjectivities and attitudes towards sexual and gender diversity in home and host societies has been asked by sociologists, geographers and anthropologists. There is research on queer diaspora, sex tourism, gender relations within migrant communities and homonationalist prejudice about heterosexism in non-Western cultures. Historical perspectives on these issues are lacking. Looking at the interplay between mobility and sexuality since 1800 enrichs transdisciplinary debates and foster fresh vistas on transnational histories of gender and sexuality. 

The workshop "Intimacy on the Move" took place at the EUI from 4 April 2022 to 5 April 2022.
