The Sexual History of the Global South: Sexual Politics in Africa, Asia and Latin America

by Saskia Wieringa and Horacio Sivori (Editors) - £20.99  Zed Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780324029 | ISBN 10: 1780324022

The Sexual History of the Global South explores the gap between sexuality studies and post-colonial cultural critique. Featuring twelve case studies, based on original historical and ethnographic research from countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the book examines the sexual investments underlying the colonial project and the construction of modern nation-states.
 
Covering issues of heteronormativity, post-colonial amnesia regarding non-normative sexualities, women's sexual agency, the policing of the boundaries between the public and the private realm, sexual citizenship, the connections between LGBTQ activism and processes of state formation, and the emergence of sexuality studies in the global South, this collection is of great geographical, historical, and topical significance.
