IASSCS conferences


Since 1997, IASSCS has hosted ten successful conferences that consolidated a solid network of scholars and advocates engaged in the social and cultural study of sexuality around the globe.

Conference participants have represented diverse disciplines including anthropology, history, sociology, health policy, and the humanities, as well as from cultural and gender studies. Further, the IASSCS network has brought together scholars, researchers, policy makers and activists, with substantial participation from the global south. These biennial conferences serve as a significant venue in the creation and strengthening of sexuality networks and coalitions across disciplines, professions and regions.

We will announce the next IASSCS conference location on 2016. Keep in touch!
