Abstract [en]

Bering a sperm donor is often framed as an easy job. Men only have to masturbate into acup and receive money in return, at least that’s what many people assume. Turning to theexperiences of Danish sperm donors, I argue that this conception of sperm donation asselfish pleasure and commodified practice offers only a limited understanding of what itmeans to provide semen samples for reproductive donation. While sperm donors’affective investments are most of the time taken for granted and not discussed, they areactually important to consider analytically if biosocial subjectivation—the persistentinvocation of the subject in terms of biomedical registers and biopolitical valuations—is tobe understood properly. Attending to masturbation as important in its own right, I will lookat the making of sperm donors as biosocial subjects through their affective investmentswhen producing semen samples. Based on ethnographic fieldwork at Danish spermbanks and interviews with Danish sperm donors, I will thus explore how men performatively (re)constitute their gendered and sexualised subjectivity in terms ofbiomedical registers and biopolitical valuations through masturbation.

Abstract [en]

The term gay is often associated with a certain gender-dichotomous, liberalising paradigm. As such, it is juxtaposed to the term queer understood as open to gender and sexual fluidity, as well as critical of liberation in the name of identities. Yet the experiences of being gay in (queer) academia do not fit neatly into any of these paradigms. Based on biographical reflections on our academic trajectories as openly gay scholars in gender and queer studies, anthropology, and sociology, in this presentation we want to explore the everyday institutional politics (Ahmed 2012) of being gay in (queer) academia and the affective dissonances (Hemmings 2012) that they lay bare. Difficulties fitting into homosocial groupings of any gender as well as problematizations of gay identity in contemporary gender and queer studies speak to the inherent in-determinability of ’gayness’ and point to the normative frameworks of contemporary (queer) academia. Thus in this presentation, we will suggest to understand gayness as immutably fluid in order to investigate the onto-epistemological boundary work of contemporary (queer) academia and to explore the analytic potentials of gayness as a form of situated knowledges (Haraway 1988).

Abstract [en]

Reflecting on the troubled relationship between anthropology and the military, we do so by discussing the underlying epistemological, methodological, and moral claims of the distinction between an anthropology of and an anthropology for the military. Through the term ethnography of things military, we propose to reposition military anthropology as intense engagements with militarisation through empathic immersion in things military. We develop this term through feminist critiques of militarisation and compassion, through discussions of critique and empathy as part of (critical) ethnographic scholarship, and through anthropological debates about the relationality of fieldwork and ethnographer-interlocutor relations. Suggesting that an ethnography of things military relies on empathic engagements with military lifeworlds, we argue that the relationship between empathy and critique in military anthropology should be understood as a continuous collaborative (and not always predictable) process of interrogating military lifeworlds’ frames of reference without necessarily sharing compassion or sympathy for them.
