Drud-Jensen, Mads Ted, and Sune Prahl Knudsen. ‘Grænsekontrol – Når Ikke-Heteroseksuelle Søger Asyl i Danmark’. Kvinder, Køn & Forskning, no. 4, 4, Dec. 2008.
The question of sexuality has not received much attention in migration studies, and (non-hetero)sexuality in relation to asylum has not previously been addressed in a Danish academic context. Drawing from Michel Foucault’s notions of power and governmentality as well as postcolonial theory and its focus on othering and culturalization/racialization, this article explores processes of subjectification of asylumseekers and processes of objectification and regulation of non-heterosexuality through the technologies of what is analytically constructed and signified as the migration apparatus. These processes (re)produce dominant notions of sexuality and culture/ race.
