The study of sexuality invites us to take into account the real and potential spaces where sexual behaviour occurs as well as, necessarily, the diversity of ways in which it is expressed. The concept of sexual “topography” allows to think about sexuality as an experience, materially located in space and time, in which mobility plays an important role on both practical and imaginary levels. Organised in the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Brussels) in October 2008, this international symposium aims at thinking through the transitory transformations of the self at stake in various forms of alternative, subversive sexual experience: sexual borders as well as psychic, identity and cultural forms of mobility in sexuality will be discussed at the intersection of anthropology, sociology and history.
