Facilitated by Sara Rich-Zendel, a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto, this session will reflect on how the researcher’s biography shapes the knowledge produced on sexuality and erotic subjectivity. She will bring together feminist work on positionality, reflexivity and intersectionality to discuss two interrelated questions: how do situated limits on sexual speech play out in the research process and who gets to speak openly about sex and produce knowledge about sexuality? The reflections are based on some of her experiences doing participant observation and interviews on sexuality and sexual politics in Nepal.
