From identity politics to a critical theory of kin: The case of Argentina

Critical Theory is challenged by the need to support and create a process of redistribution of wealth and recognition. In Argentina, this latter aspect has found its way through the state in a series of laws granting sexuality and identity rights, on which the Comprehensive Sexual Education Law (2006) has been the general working frame. I will try to reconstruct this process, highlighting its limitations and its current agenda, in order to break through the critical theories that supported it. The breakthrough is intended to transcend the current attention paid to “identity” and move to the new domain: “kin”.
