About the Author:

ANA CRISTINA SANTOS is a Senior Researcher at the Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra, Portugal and Honorary Research Fellow at the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research, University of London, UK.

Review:

'A much needed, richly theorised and empirically detailed account across the times and places of 'Southern Europe' and the varied sexual citizenships re-constituting publics, presences and participation in and beyond locales. Santos combines urgent political focus on new activisms, in their material, affective and geographical locatedness, intersected with astute academic intervention across inter-disciplines, international contexts and in-between 'academic' and 'activist' outlooks. Questions of recognition, ethics, empathy are weaved into contested notions of rights, mainstreaming and marginalisation. A new vocabulary of 'queer public sociology' and 'syncretic activism' is provided: there is much to learn from this engaging must read book.' -Yvette Taylor, Head of the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, London South Bank University, UK, author of Lesbian and Gay Parenting: Securing Social and Educational Capital

'A powerful and striking account of the dynamic development of LGBT politics in Southern Europe. With impressive original sources, Santos offers a sensitive, highly attuned depiction of the conflict and change facing organised sexual minorities struggling for visibility, inclusion and social transformation across the institutions of state and nation.' - Davina Cooper, Professor of Law & Political Theory, University of Kent, UK.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 240 pages. This book explores the relationship between social movements, sexual citizenship and change in the context of Southern Europe. Providing a comparative analysis about LGBT issues in Italy, Spain and Portugal, it discusses how activism can generate political, legal and cultural change in post-dictatorial, Catholic and EU-focused countries. The significance of Portugal regarding sexual citizenship stems from the impressive pace at which LGBT rights were granted after the emergence of a LGBT movement. In some respects, Portugal led the way for LGBT rights in Europe. Offering a close engagement with sociological analysis of Spanish and Italian contemporary LGBT politics, this case study provides an opportunity to rethink collective action and sexual citizenship, contributing to timely theoretical and political debates. Based on extensive fieldwork and original qualitative analysis, the book suggests the notion of syncretic activism as a third way of approaching the debate between assimilationism and radicalism. The notion of syncretic activism offers a synthesis of transformative, transgressive and deconstructionist approaches to identity within diversity politics. These findings have direct implications in the understanding and political potential of collective action, highlighting the complex interplay between aims, strategies and outcomes of LGBT activism in Southern Europe.
