    Sexual Counter - Revolutions

    Advanced seminar arranged by the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES), Södertörn University.

    Speaker:  Alexander Kondakov, University of Helsinki (Finland).

    Chair: Yulia Gradskova, Södertörn University.

    Alexander Kondakov's keynote lecture is a part of the workshop "Postsocialist Revolutions of Intimacy: Sexuality, Rights and Backlash" 1-2 October 2018 (Center for Baltic and East European Studies, Södertörn University and the Nordic Museum (Stockholm).

    There were many dates in the contemporary history when scholars and activists argued for the victories of sexual revolutions: from the socialist innovations in the beginning of the 20th century to the feminist achievements in end of the 1960s to ‘transformation of intimacy’ in the 1990s. Yet, not so much attention has been given to sexual counter-revolutions until very recently. These current reactions to social change in sexual sphere are not new in the forms, but the conservative consensus across national borders and political affiliations is striking. Russia has played an important role in the process of sexual counter-revolution. Its government claimed leadership in the movement by promoting ‘traditional values’ in the UNO, by legislative anti-LGBT and anti-feminist initiatives domestically, and by institutionalization of religious and misogynist prejudice. This paper is an attempt to contextualize Russia’s role in the sexual counter-revolution by close analysis of its international and domestic efforts to protect heteronormative system of oppression.

    Alexander Kondakov, PhD in Sociology, assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and Sociology at the European University at St. Petersburg and researcher at the Centre for Independent Social Research in St. Petersburg, Russia. He is also the deputy editor-in-chief for the Journal of Social Policy Studies published by the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. Kondakov’s work has been primarily focused on law and sexuality studies, more specifically on queer sexualities in Russia.
