January 28: Troubling the Teaching & Learning of Sexuality Diversity in South African Education

TROUBLINGTroubling the Teaching & Learning of Sexuality Diversity in South African Education

a lecture by Dennis Francis

January 28, Thursday
7 to 8:30 pm

Dennis Francis, University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa, and CSGS Visiting Fulbright Scholar

The lecture is about lesbian, gay and bisexual youth in South African schools. The research globally and in South African on sexuality diversity in education, pivots on two discursive axes of victimization and agency. There is a cost for research to emphasize exclusively this duality. Despite its usefulness, the lecture argues that the victim-agency dualism is counterproductive and four arguments are made – it leads us to a cul-de-sac, reduces heterosexism and heteronormativity to the individual level and fails to take account of the systemic nature of heterosexism, ignores the multiplicity of identities LGB youth hold and it seriously compromises a focus on same sex relationships, intimacy, desire and the aspirations of LGB youth.
