Understanding Global Sexualities: New frontiers
Professor Peter Aggleton
Published by Routledge, and edited jointly with Henrietta Moore from the University of Cambridge and Richard Parker from Columbia University, New York, this theory-building book adopts a global perspective on sex and sexuality.
Topics focused on include the relationship between sexuality and gender; the nature and status of heterosexuality; hetero- and homo-normativity; the intersection of class, race and age on sexual identities and lifestyles; and new forms of sexuality emerging in rich world and developing world contexts.
With contributions from leading scholars and activists across the world, the book highlights ‘flash-points’ in contemporary debate, and offers innovative new ways of thinking about sex and sexuality. An extended essay by Henrietta Moore introduces the volume, and an afterword by Jeffrey Weeks offers pointers for the future.
