Travelling conversations: Cross-cultural collaboration and the globalization of sexuality studies

Stephanie Forsythe Jackson, Petula Sik Ying Ho

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this short article we draw on our personal experience as sexuality scholars to consider what is at stake in attempting to globalize sexuality studies. In so doing we reflect on what we have learnt from collaborating across cultures and discuss some of the barriers to correcting the western/northern dominance of this and other fields, from western theoretical hegemony to the constraints of working within authoritarian regimes. We also suggest some possible ways forward, while recognising that these represent only a very limited beginning given the challenges we face.
