According to Sheller (2012: 279), erotic agency encompasses ‘all forms of self-determination of one’s bodily relation to time, space, movement, labour, knowledge, kinship, and divinity. ’ Erotic agency as ‘engagement with life’ and as ‘embodied freedom’ implies a much more holistic locus of citizenship than the more conventional political, economic, and social connotations of citizenship. In Sheller’s more cultural and discursive AGEING, GENDER, AND MIGRATION: THEORISING ENTWINED BECOMINGS 43 model, citizenship is understood as ‘a set of intertwined practices and collective repertoires for defining, legitimating, and exercising the rights of some bodies against others’ (2012: 21).
