Dr Serena Petrella, Brandon University, Canada, is Associate Professor in Sociology and Gender and Women’s Studies and AMSA member, specializing in sexuality studies, relational norms, sexual regulation in the Law, polygamy and polyamory; she published Doing Gender, Doing Love (Interdisciplinary Press, 2014). She has recently published an edited collection, Erotic Subjects and Outlaws: Sketching the Borders of Sexual Citizenship.
This book examines the intricacies of emergent sexual citizenship. Designed for academics and broader audiences alike, the collection covers the theorization of sexual citizenship, the exploration of case studies in law, the relationship between sexual citizenship and bio-politics, and finally the erotic dissidence of sexual outlaws. The borders of sexual citizenship are traced, as authors investigate what it means to be ‘inside,’ as erotic subjects, or outside, as ‘sexual outlaws.’
The issues of inclusion and exclusion are approached through diverse methodological and analytical lenses: some articles are theoretical and philosophical, others are empirically based, presenting the findings of sociological and ethnographic research projects; some are textual analyses, of religious texts, film texts, and of legal discourse. Contributors are Abidemi Fasanmi, René Hirsch, Elene Lam, Jaclyn Lanthier, Todd G. Morrison, Nick J. Mulé, Elly-Jean Nielsen, Serena Petrella, Olivia Schuman and Deww Zhang.
