Sexuality Policy Watch (SPW) launches the third publication of its most recent cycle of transnational analyses on sexual politics that started in 2015.
The first Working Paper titled Sex at dusk and the mourning after: sexuality policy in the United States in the years of Obama, authored by Susana T. Fried and Cynthia Rothschild was published in May, 2018. Then, in September, SexPolitics Trends & Tensions in the 21st Century: Critical Issues, a first edited volume comprising four articles was made available.
We now offer to our readers a second Working Paper: The Catholic Church’s Legal strategies – The Re-naturalization of Law and the Religious Embedding of Citizenship is authored by Juan Marco Vaggione and examines the long-standing and constantly adjusted Catholic Church engagement with the law, as well as with conceptions of citizenship, which is aimed at containing transformations of gender and sexuality orders.
We dearly thank Juan Marco and the other authors featured in this series for generously making this excellent outcome possible.
