Organization:Chemical Youth, Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research – University of Amsterdam (AISSR-UvA)
This double panel follows the chemicals to urban sites in Asia and the pacific where sexual relations and reproductive health have been reconfigured by chemistry. The papers present ethnographies of how young people manage their bodies in response to hegemonic beauty ideals and to express specific sexual and gendered identities, taking as point of departure that masculinities and femininities are not imposed but negotiated, experimented upon, and achieved within social relations. The papers explore how “Chemical sexualities” involve both symbolic and sensorial interactions between and among young people, how they are affected by conditions of precarity, how they engage work to earn a living, achieve their aspirations,and age.
