It is open until February 28, 2021, a call for submitting articles from the dossier "RACE, GENDER AND SEXUALITY: DISPUTES OF NARRATIVES AND HISTORY OF STRUCTURING AXES OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE GLOBAL SOUTH", organized by Ana Flávia Magalhães Pinto (UnB), Keisha-Khan Perry (Brown University) and Thiago Gehre Galvão (UnB)
The 21st century continues to be marked by absences, silences, and deliberately attitudes to place race, gender, and sexuality (RGS) into oblivion. Otherwise, RGS are structuring axes of Global South national states and international relations, as well as sociability practices that go beyond traditional Political History categories. These limitations, however, do not account for all the experiences lived especially from the 19th century until now. More recently, we have witnessed persistent disputes of narratives about the meanings of humanity, citizenship, and human rights. A specific dynamic connecting subordinate subjects from a hegemonic perspective, with emphasis on black, indigenous, women and LGBTQI + people and acknowledging the specifics of Latinos, Arabs, Jews, and Asians. Based on these individuals and human groups, one should focus on understand the denunciation of the fundamentally racist character of global society. Also, it is necessary to problematize the effects of the permanence of colonial, patriarchal and heteronormative family structures, strongly oriented in the figures of white men and white women, as epitomes of domination. It is not by chance that gender debates have advanced in recognizing the roles assumed by white women in reproduction and in maintaining that order, in tune with their male peers in relation to negatively racialized groups. This, of course, ends up producing resonances in several different institutional frameworks. With regard to the international conferences of the United Nations (UN), we could highlight relevant incidences of these subjects in the agenda of strategic meetings, namely: the Conference on Population and Development (CIPD), held in Cairo in 1994; the IV World Conference on Women, held in Beijing / Beijing, in 1995; the II World Conference on Human Settlements (HABITAT II), Istanbul, 1996; and the Third World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Forms of Intolerance, based in Durban, in 2001. This, in turn, ends up promoting new resonances in the daily lives of different societies in the Global South. This scenario, therefore, calls for the maturation of historical and interdisciplinary analyses guided by the intersectionality of race, gender and sexuality, since our identities are not separated into blocks, nor do we suffer in fragmented plots what we mean. Thinking on the potential of the interdisciplinary debate between Anthropology, Sociology, International Relations and Political Science, this Special Issue of Anos 90 encourage the submission of articles developed within the scope of historical studies and related areas, in dialogue with History.
