Resumen en inglés We talked for about 50 minutes the next day in a semi-structured interview seeking to touch on the topics mobilized in the talks and in her academic work. Many of the questions are situated in the political context in which the event took place (in Brazil, during elections), but also in reference to broader global movements of conservatism: Viktor Orbán had recently banned gender studies in Hungary, and the New York Times had recently published a piece stating that the Trump administration was trying to ‘define transgender out of existence’ (Green et al 2018). What could be the impact of those moves for current global politics? How can we rethink gender and global politics while taking these changes into consideration? Are there ways to resist?
