This is a group for members and other academics related to European Sociological Association (ESA) Sexuality Research Network (RN 23). In contrast to the long history of medical and psychological interest in sexuality, the sociological understanding of sexuality is a relatively new phenomenon, spanning a history of some 40 years. However during this time the sociology of sexuality, through both empirical research and theoretical writing, has become an important feature of academic work at both a national and international level. This work has enabled sociology to develop critical alternatives to the essentialism present in mainstream research on sexualities. Similarly, significant links have been made between sexuality and other salient social identities, for example gender, race, class and nationality. Whilst acknowledging the importance of biology, contemporary sociologists of sexuality prioritize the relationship between the individual and society to show the ways in which sexual desires, practices, identities, and attitudes are conceptualized, categorized, deployed, and ultimately regulated through the social institutions and practices of different societies. These areas, together with issues relating to the theorisation of sexuality alongside methodological developments, is an form important foci for ESA Sexuality Research Network.

The list is open to anyone with an interest in the topic, but it originated in a workshop on Political Community: Authority in the Name of Community hosted by the Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL) at the University of Aberdeen in June 2014. You can access the full topic description at http://wp.me/PASsb-45. We confirmed in a previous workshop that the term “political community” was appropriate for identifying a core set of issues that interest us at CISRUL, even though it was evident that no term will ever carry all the right connotations and none of the wrong ones. Though we each have our own preferred approach, reflecting the wide range of perspectives in CISRUL, several of us are using the term “political community” for one whose members feel somehow represented within its structures of authority, and thus somehow obliged to their fellow-members to follow its norms and accept its decisions. We prefer, on the whole, to reserve the term “political community” for those that claim a degree of self-sufficiency and we distinguish political communities from political collectives such as trade unions or churches which see themselves as players in a broader political community. In a political community, (more or less) ultimate authority is claimed in the name of some kind of (more or less) encompassing community of members.
