Eric Fassin: Threatening Gender

Gender studies have long faced indifference. But today, they are confronted with two symmetrical problems: instrumentalization and rejection.

Éric Fassin is Professor of Sociology in the Departments of Political Science and Gender Studies, Paris-8 University Vincennes – Saint-Denis, Laboratoire d’études de genre et de sexualité (CNRS)
