A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Sexology in Culture examines the impact of key writings by sexologists on English--speaking culture from the 1880s to the early 1940s. How influential a field was sexology during this period, and how much power did sexologists wield? What was the impact of their work on popular and official attitudes to sex? In this volume, Lucy Bland and Laura Doan have brought together leading historians of sex, cultural and literary critics, and scholars in gay, lesbian and queer studies, to reassess current debates on sexology in light of its history. Issues addressed include the relation of sexual science to the law, government policy, journalism, eugenical programmes, marriage and sex manuals, and literary representation. Other chapters map out new readings of transsexuality and bisexuality, and the centrality of race within sexological discourse. This book will be of interest to all those concerned with understanding modern sexual discourse in its historical context, and will be essential reading for researchers, teachers, and students interested in the history and study of sex.

Critique:

"This book throws important new light on our understanding of thecultural role of sexology, the would?be ?science of desire?, inshaping ideas of sexuality during the twentieth century. Theindividual essays are compelling and enjoyable, while the volume asa whole shows the complexity of the sexological endeavour:constitutive and enabling, liberal and conservative, marginal atfirst and yet vital in the shaping of modern sexual discourses." Professor Jeffrey Weeks, South Bank University, London

"This fascinating collection is a vital addition to ourknowledge of sexual theory and its consequences." ProfessorSheila Rowbotham, University of Manchester and author of ACentury of Women

"Sexology in Culture will surely come to be seen as amilestone." Times Literary Supplement

"The reader gets a rich flavour of source material alongsideincisive critical analysis; a productive combination for student,academic and general reader." The Times Higher EducationSupplement

" Sexology in Culture is an excellent collection of thekind of focused studies that have made the history of sexualitysuch a dynamic research field in recent years.an admirablecollection informative, well?organized and intellectuallystimulating" Chandak Sengoopta, University of Manchester,Medical History
