The Intersexualities group aims to foster a critical reflection about politics and power relations from the perspective of theories that problematize Gender, Sex and Sexualities.

Considering that there are social groups lacking representation in a number of recognized political structures, that there are subjects (human or literary) ignored or discarded and that neither the sciences nor the humanities are exempt from sexual politics, the group’s research will focus on the following topics:

  • Who has a voice and who doesn’t?
  • Which bodies matter and which bodies are left out of the frame of materiality, not even seeming to deserve to become matter (be it physical, scientific or even literary)?
  • Which frontiers are set between genres and genders, between science and literature, between local and global, and who or what sets them?
