The IntersexualiTIES group aims to trigger a critical reflection about Politics and power relationships from the perspective of theories that problematise Gender, Sex and Sexualities.

Considering that there are social groups lacking representation in a number of recognised political structures, that there are subjects (human or literary) ignored or discarted and that neither Sciences nor Humanities are immune to sexual politics, the group will focus its research on the following topics:

  • Who owns 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?
