I am pleased to share a special issue of the Journal of Middle East Women's Studies, titled, "Decolonizing Sex and Sexuality," edited by Jarrod Hayes.

The title of this themed issue uses the term decolonization to refer to the work of producing sexuality and feminist scholarship and theory focused on the specificities of the region. The issue features articles that challenge dominant notions of decolonization and postcoloniality in relation to sex, sexuality, and feminism. Specifically, the articles critically engage with scholarship and theory from the metropole, examine un- and underexplored territory, including non-normative and non-conforming lives and embodiments, and address taken-for-granted questions, such as how to define queer and feminist in this context.
