Leticia Sabsay Website

Dr. Leticia Sabsay joined London School of Economics in September 2014. Prior to this, she held a lectureship at the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London, and was a research associate at the Department of Politics and International Studies, The Open University, appointed to the European Research Council Project, Oecumene Citizenship after Orientalism. Previous to her experience in the UK, she held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Freie Universitat of Berlin (Germany), and was a lecturer at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina). Her work interrogates the entanglement between sexuality, subjectivity and the political as processes of cultural translation, both across disciplines and transnational contexts. Throughout her career, Leticia also developed an enduring interest in theories of performativity and discourse, which led her to publish extensively on Judith’s Butler work. This perspective has been central to her current research on the deployment of contemporary imaginaries of sexual freedom and justice in popular culture and political discourse.
