New Family Models

Talk / 60'

A talk between Éric Fassin in and Roman Kuhar:

The order of the family, sexual democracy, and human ecology

Throughout the world, the sexual order has become a major political issue. The battle about “gay marriage,” that is, the opening of marriage to same-sex couples and the recognition of queer families, is part of a history that includes reproductive rights for women, contraception, abortion, and access to assisted reproductive technologies. To understand these political and geopolitical controversies about sexual difference, sexuality, and the family, in particular the religion mobilization against the (so-called) “theory of gender” and in favor of a “human ecology,” one needs to analyze the diffusion of the democratic logic that is at work in our societies to sexual issues.
