Decolonizing Sex and Sexuality
Journal Issue Pages: 128 Volume 14, Number 2 Published: July 2018 An issue of Journal of Middle East Women's Studies

The title of this themed issue uses the term "decolonization"to refer to the work of producing sexuality and feminist scholarship and theory focused on the specificities of the region. The issue features articles that challenge dominant notions of decolonization and postcoloniality in relation to sex, sexuality, and feminism. Specifically, the articles critically engage with scholarship and theory from the metropole, examine un- and underexplored territory, including non-normative and non-conforming embodiments and life, and address novel or taken-for-granted questions, such as how to define "queer" and "feminist."
