2014 Proceedings

Stanimir Panayotov and Ana Koncul (Eds.), Proceedings from the Summer School for Sexualities, Cultures and Politics 2014, Belgrade: IPAK.Center, 2015.

The following texts have been written by a range of talented young scholars, artists and activists. We consider the first issue of the SSSCP Proceedings a great contribution to a wider body of research conducted within the field of cultural studies overall, but also to queer theory/politics/practice, gender studies, media and studies of the body. What differentiates this collection from others is a delicate balance between personal journeys and academic adventures that authors have taken upon. The first edition is also of invaluable importance and an immensely relevant input to a regional political and cultural struggle to embrace otherness. We would even go as far as to claim that the present collection represents a fresh and daring contribution to the inert regional academic production and a useful, empowering tool for various sorts of activist and artistic endeavors.
