Abstract:     
This forward to a symposium issue of the law review maps the terrain of legal regulation of sexuality. It locates sexuality within a matrix of power, knowledge, and resistance and the question of regulation of sexuality is approached from the perspective of the sexually marginalized subject -- the sexual subaltern. It briefly reviews the contributions to the symposium and forwards a research agenda about questions of theory and praxis related to the production and regulation of sexual subjects.
