Seminar 4: What's Political About Sexualities?

Observations on Women in International Law
Seminars | Workshops

This seminar explores matters of sexuality and stigma in the light of post-coloniality and pandemic-affected professional practice.

Our intention is to show how social work’s practical concern with individuals and families does (must) not close down social, political and intersectional analysis, may draw on legal and international analyses, and to remind colleagues that the Social Work and Social Policy REF Unit of Assessment is a ‘broad church’ into which their work may fit.
