Julie Moreau

Julie Moreau received her Ph.D. from McGill University in Political Science (Comparative Politics and International Relations), with a regional focus on Africa and Latin America, and a graduate certificate from McGill’s Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Washington University in St. Louis prior to appointment at U of T. Her research interests include transnational queer politics, social movements, and citizenship. Her work appears in New Political Science, Space and Polity, Journal of Lesbian Studies, Mobilization: An International Journal, and several edited collections. Her book manuscript, After Equality: Organizing Lesbian Citizenship in South Africa & Argentina, explores the construction of collective sexual identities in contexts of legal equality. She is currently working on another project that examines the diffusion of same-sex marriage norms in Latin America, as well a collaboration that examines LGBTQ Latinx political participation in the 2016 US Presidential election. Professor Moreau will teach courses on the politics of race, class, gender and sexuality for both the department and the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies.
