Beschreibung

Historicising Gender and Sexuality features a diverse collection of essays that shed new light on the historical intersections between gender and sexuality across time and space.
* Demonstrates both the particularities of specific formulations of gender and sexuality and the nature of the relationship between the categories themselves
* Presents evidence that careful and contextualised analysis of the shifting relationship of gender and sexuality illuminates broader historical processes
