From the Vatican to the Streets: Unpacking the New Anti-Gender Campaigns
Start Date: 4/11/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 4/11/2017End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description
David Paternotte, PhD, (Universite libre de Bruxelles) presents his research on anti-gender research campaigns in the contemporary age.


Across the globe, we have experienced several waves of opposition to gender and sexual rights in recent years. Targets may vary nationally (marriage equality, abortion, reproductive technologies, gender mainstreaming, sex education, transgender rights, anti-discrimination policies, etc.) but a similar pattern is observed across borders. Conservative activists contest the so-called “gender ideology”, they share modes of action and strategies, and they portray themselves as a group of concerned citizens defending the family.

This lecture, which comes out of a comparative project directed with Roman Kuhar (University of Ljulbjana), will map out the contemporary anti-gender movement in Europe. It will unveil the crucial role of the Roman Catholic Church, and examine the intersections with rising populism and nationalistic anxieties.

Join us as part of the Department of Politics LGBTQ Speaker Series.
