For a panel on the sex industry in global perspective we are still seeking papers from around the globe that provide empirical case studies of the life worlds associated with the sex industry (including clients, entrepreneurs, policies, sex workers, etc.). The panel seeks to explore, from a comparative perspective, the larger theoretical framework of the sex industry as an example of a global care chain and the changing notions about the meaning and practice of sex.

Are you still planning on putting together a panel?  Have you written a call for papers or are you using your networking skills to get fellow presenters?

Dear Yasmina,

I have just read the announcement of your book on Tijuana and am very interested in your research. I am writing at the moment a proposal for a research grant to do something similar in Germany, which you might know has legalized prostitution in 2002. In my own research I focus on the network spheres associated with prostitution.

I was planning to put a panel together for the AAA on the topic of networks in the globalized sex industry, in which I would like to bring together anthropologists (or related folks) who have done on-site studies of this industry in various parts of the world. Your work seems to be supremely interesting and right what i was looking for.

Please let me know whether you would be interested in such a panel. Of course, very likely you might already have committed yourself.
