Dr Wannes Dupont
Lecturer in History of Sexuality
Previously, I was Assistant Professor of History at Yale-NUS College in Singapore after postdoctoral fellowships at Yale University and for the Flemish Research Foundation at the University of Antwerp. My work, publications, and teaching primarily concern the European, Asian and global sexual pasts, queer history, reproductive politics, and the intersections of biopolitics and religion.
