IUAES Global Feminisms and Queer Politics

Who Are We

The concepts of Feminism and Queer have been interwoven into our discourses at various forums and panels of the IUAES. We wish to deal with all aspects of feminisms and queer theory. As a concept, feminism points to the widening disparities of wealth, health, power, and access to citizenship and human rights that characterize the current global era as a historically-contingent conjuncture that social scientists seek to interrogate and better understand. These growing disparities are grounded in intersecting dimensions of difference that implicate hierarchies and social asymmetries that are organized around gender, race, ethnonational or religious status, class, caste, sexuality, generation (i.e., age), or differences in ability. The most relevant intersections vary across contexts of time and space. The cultural logics, regimes of representation, geopolitics, and formations of political economy that contribute to the feminism and queer are deepening the social inequalities that re-shape the terrain upon which diverse human agents are differentially positioned to navigate within a variety of contexts, which range from local to transnational levels.

The International Commission on Global Feminisms and Queer Politics provide a platform for engaging in critical analysis on aspects of globalization, neoliberalism, development, and socio-political and gender dynamics that are often neglected within established bodies of anthropological research.


Its activities are focused on organizing conferences for the IUAES as well as facilitating other meetings and workshops. The journal of Nomadic Peoples is part of its mandate. It maintains an email distribution list for important announcements (to join the list, you may register on-line). Above all it exists to encourage international exchanges and linkages among researchers and practitioners who are interested in nomadic and pastoral populations throughout the world.
