Offering a rethinking from the perspective of queer desire at the intersections..

I’m Speaking at B4U-ACT’s Conference!

with one comment

Earlier today I received this amazing email from B4U-ACT:

We are pleased to inform you that your presentation has been accepted for B4U-ACT’s symposium, “Pedophilia, Minor-Attracted Persons, and the DSM: Issues and Controversies” on August 17, 2011. We are happy to report that a large number of excellent proposals were submitted by a slate of respected researchers and scholars that promises a productive and inspiring day. Your proposal was selected as one that will make a significant contribution to this important discussion.

For those of you who don’t know, B4U-ACT is an organization “founded to promote dialog among mental health professionals, researchers, and minor-attracted persons.” The conference is a “day-long symposium [that] will facilitate the exchange of ideas among researchers, scholars, mental health practitioners, and minor-attracted persons who have an interest in critical issues surrounding the entry for pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association.”

My talk, titled “Sexual Alignment: Critiquing Sexual Orientation, The Pedophile, and the DSM V” will be very closely tied to my dissertation and I cannot wait to share my thoughts and research with people who are invested in shifting the debate on minor attracted persons.

  1. Wow. Lucky you. I wish i could talk there. There will be many MAAs there, so it will probably be interesting. Pedophilia is not a mental illness, its a sexual orientation.

    If you want info for your thesis, have you checked out Newgon and IPCE?
