  • Queer Colonial Journeys: Alfred Russel Wallace and Somerset Maugham in the
           Malay Archipelago
    • Abstract: The colonial journey of exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries into the interior of territories previously unknown to Europeans was, according to Anne McClintock, typically represented in travel narratives as moving forward in space but backward in time. As the aboriginal inhabitants were held to be "primitive," meaning "undeveloped," they could be cast figuratively into "anachronistic space," and the "empty" lands occupied and exploited. These acts of racial subjugation might be compared to the subjugation of women and the working classes by the European bourgeoisie. For McClintock, the "liberal imagination" was formed in the merging of empire and domesticity.1 The work of Ann Stoler and others has ... Read More

  • Dressed Like a Man?: Of Language, Bodies, and Monsters in the Trial of
           Enrique/Enriqueta Favez and Its Contemporary Accounts
    • Abstract: The Nature you bedevil me with is a lie. Do not trust it to protect you from what I represent, for it is a fabrication that cloaks the groundlessness of the privilege you seek to maintain for yourself at my expense. . . . I call upon you to investigate your nature as I have been compelled to confront mine. I challenge you to risk abjection and flourish as well as have I. Heed my words, and you may well discover the seams and sutures in yourself.In 1823 one of the most scandalous trials of the nineteenth century took place in Santiago de Cuba. A year earlier a housekeeper named Rosa Suárez walked into the bedroom of her master—a well-known and respected Swiss doctor—in order to help him undress and get into bed ... Read More

  • Concubinage, Clandestine Marriage, and Gender in the Visitation Records of
           Fourteenth-Century Catalonia
    • Abstract: In the dead of winter in the year 1313, the canon Galceran de Sacosta arrived in the village of Puigcerdà, located on the Pyrenean border between what is now Catalonia and France. Since leaving the cathedral city of Urgell in December, Galceran had spent two months traveling through dangerous mountain passes and bitter cold to remote parishes situated in the most northern region of the diocese of Urgell. On a number of occasions, the visitor found he could not conduct an inquiry into parish life because no one was present in the village to interrogate, a sign of the pastoral life of these people, who were out tending to their flocks of sheep. For the most part, however, the visitor was able to find a few villagers ... Read More

  • AIDS, Mass Observation, and the Fate of the Permissive Turn
    • Abstract: The Mass Observtion Project (MO) was initiated in Great Britain in 1937 by anthropologist Tom Harrisson, poet Charles Madge, and filmmaker Humphrey Jennings as an independent radical social research experiment. It aimed to garner accounts of the daily lives, thoughts, and feelings of "ordinary" people. A self-selecting panel of Mass Observers (MOers) were asked to comment on questions and themes set out in regular "directives" (as MO called them) on, for example, the abdication of Edward VIII, conditions in wartime, Christmas, food, homelessness, and much more. MO ran in this first phase until the early 1950s, leaving an archive now held at the Keep archive center (a collaboration between the University of Sussex ... Read More

  • Episcopal Virginity in Medieval England
    • Abstract: In his classic study of medieval sainthood, André Vauchez outlines the qualities that characterized a saint-bishop in mid-twelfth-century Europe: "He was not expected to perform ascetic exploits or shine as a scholar, but be sober and temperate. What was crucial was that he should be of good morals, and above all demonstrate the values of a leader and administrator. The chief virtues demanded of him were benevolence and discretion, moderation and balance."1 Although Vauchez goes on to outline his theory that, from the twelfth century onward, the post-Gregorian "drive to monasticize the episcopate" led to increased emphasis on the celibacy and virginity of certain bishops, it is clear that he considers the episcopal ...

    • Abstract: In June 1932 editors at the popular New York tabloid Brevities reported that one of Broadway's prettiest chorus girls was sporting a black eye.1 The cause? The dancer, the rag claimed, had made "amorous advances" toward another female performer. When a male stagehand interrupted the romantic overture, the conflict swiftly devolved into a fistfight: the chorus girl slapped the stagehand, only to be slugged back. However racy, the item faded into the gossip column of half-truths and incomplete lies in which it appeared. Responses died away; the city trudged its way into a new week of summer. And the chorus girl—spectacular and mysterious, feminine and predatory—slipped, one presumes, back to her spangled costumes and ... Read More

  • Lesbian Decadence: Representations in Art and Literature of Fin-de-Siècle
           France by Nicole G. Albert (review)
    • Abstract: This is, in the first instance, a richly erudite work that asks to be read as a work of literary history, simply requiring literature to be understood in its broadest sense: "I have privileged primary sources and exhumed minor or overlooked novelists, diving into texts that were often published in papers or magazines," writes Albert in her prologue (xii). By plunging into such archives she has produced an invaluable collection of representations, verbal and pictorial, of what was understood in late nineteenth-century France by sapphism (or Lesbos). The richness of the collection is, however, unconstrained to the point of being somewhat disorderly, as the author struggles to give a properly analytical shape to the ... Read More

  • Crossing the Color Line: Race, Sex and the Contested Politics of
           Colonialism in Ghana by Carina E. Ray (review)
    • Abstract: The regulation of sexuality in European colonies is a popular topic, but rarely has it been examined in such a nuanced way. This well-sourced book covers the sixteenth century to the present day, although the primary focus is on African European concubinage and marriage in the Gold Coast during British colonization, between the 1890s and the 1950s. The strength of this book is Ray's close study of the thousands of pages of material covering the small number of interracial relationships investigated by the Colonial Office, which make up the bulk of part 1, along with the few cases of intermarriage in Britain and the repercussions there and in the Gold Coast from 1919 to the present day, as detailed in the shorter ...

  • Thinking Sex with the Early Moderns by Valerie Traub (review)
    • Abstract: Valerie Traub's Thinking Sex with the Early Moderns is a landmark in the field of queer studies. It is a bold and personal book that constitutes an ambitious attempt to address a series of cruxes, contradictions, and controversies in the intersections between queer theory, gender studies, and the history of sexuality. Over the course of ten chapters Traub articulates a series of thoughtful, rigorous, and cohesive positions on a wide range of issues, from a reading of Shakespeare's sonnets to a meditation on lesbian historiography. In each case, Traub identifies the core of the issue, explores various possible responses, and takes a clear but nuanced stand.At the heart of the book is the notion that sex can itself ... Read More

  • Riotous Flesh: Women, Physiology, and the Solitary Vice in
           Nineteenth-Century America by April R. Haynes (review)
    • Abstract: April Haynes's wonderful book will require me to completely rewrite my lecture for my history of sexuality course on the sexual politics of the antebellum United States. For years I have enjoyed teasing students by giving them graham crackers, only to inform them several bites later that the wafers' inventor, Sylvester Graham, believed a bland diet would dampen sexual desires. Students giggle when I tell them about the "great masturbation scare" of the antebellum period, when Graham and others warned that young men risked their health and livelihood if they indulged in the "solitary vice." I tell them a story about white middle-class attempts to regulate the otherwise unbridled sexual energies of young men and ... Read More

  • Queen and Country: Same-Sex Desire in the British Armed Forces, 1939–45
           by Emma Vickers (review)
    • Abstract: Jimmy Jacques turned up to a recruitment center in southeast London in 1940. He underwent the routine medical examination, discovered he had an A1 body, and entered the Royal Artillery. Nobody suspected anything about his sexuality. As he said, "I just acted as you would normally . . . with people until you found out who was and who wasn't" (40). In Queen and Country Emma Vickers explores the meaning of same-sex desire for men like Jimmy and for women who desired other women in the British forces during the Second World War. Finding out who was and who wasn't, as Jimmy put it, led some military personnel into trouble, others into a new social world, and a few into both.Vickers's book is a welcome addition to the ...

  • "No One Helped": Kitty Genovese, New York City, and the Myth of Urban
           Apathy by Marcia M. Gallo (review)
    • Abstract: The recent fifty-year anniversary of the murder of Kitty Genovese in New York City on 13 March 1964 was accompanied by a new round of popular and academic articles, books, and a documentary film, The Witness, focused on her brother's quest to understand her death. Marcia Gallo's "No One Helped" is a distinctive contribution to this body of work. Her study has three main aspects, highlighted in its subtitle: Kitty Genovese herself and why and how her life story disappeared into a story of her death; New York City in the early 1960s, with its cultural and political specificities, on the edge of the profound social shifts identified with the decade; and "the myth of urban apathy" that was spun from the story told of ...

  • Sex, Soldiers and the South Pacific, 1939–45: Queer Identities in
           Australia in the Second World War by Yorick Smaal (review)
    • Abstract: In the epilogue of Sex, Soldiers and the South Pacific, Yorick Smaal tells the story of a group of veterans who on Anzac Day in 1982 attended the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne to acknowledge those who had served and died during the Second World War. There was a small, imperceptible difference between those veterans and the rest of the crowd that gathered around the memorial that day to pay their respects. These veterans were gay, and they were attempting to lay a wreath that acknowledged the contribution and existence of their gay colleagues. It is perhaps not surprising that the men were prevented from laying the wreath and that their actions were lambasted by Bruce Ruxton, the president of Victoria's ... Read More

  • The Force of Beauty: Transforming French Ideas of Femininity in the Third
           Republic by Holly Grout (review)
    • Abstract: The Force of Beauty investigates how and when cultivating desirability became respectable work for women, with careful attention to the multifaceted interactions between the social and the cultural and between producers and consumers. Grout strikes a balance between social histories, on the one hand, that attend to the actions and choices of individuals while treating cultural concepts as pervasive hegemonies, and cultural histories, on the other hand, that investigate the production of ideas by cultural elites without exploring their impact in daily life or expropriation by ordinary people. This balanced approach investigates the creation of cultural meanings attached to ideals of beauty as much as the material ... Read More

  • Sexology and Translation: Cultural and Scientific Encounters across the
           Modern World ed. by Heike Bauer (review)
    • Abstract: This welcome volume explores the intersections between sexology, translation, and modernity, and the provocative notion of "translation as invention" lies at the volume's heart. The focus on translation—"the dynamic process by which ideas are produced and transmitted" (2)—enables the authors to move beyond medicoforensic studies of sexology in favor of examining the history of this discipline within cultural, political, and geographical contexts. The volume's contributors aim to revise notions that "sexuality" and sexology itself were Western constructs disseminated from imperial cores. Instead, they argue that sexual ideas were formed in complex cultural negotiations in multiple, contemporaneous sites through ... Read More

  • Virgin Nation: Sexual Purity and American Adolescence by Sara Moslener
           (review)
    • Abstract: From the 1990s through the early 2000s, Christian abstinence organizations motivated socially conservative Christian churches in the United States to get into the business of sexual education, and they made profound incursions into federal policy and public education. Under pressure from abstinence advocates, federal welfare reform legislation was introduced in 1996 and earmarked federal funding for abstinence-only sex education. These programs invited public school students to sign abstinence pledges, a practice that transplanted a creedal approach to sexuality (shed of overt religious references) from Christian churches into public schools. Although this trend in Christian thought about abstinence and the ... Read More

  • Contesting Intersex: The Dubious Diagnosis by Georgiann Davis (review)
    • Abstract: Georgiann Davis is a sociologist and an advocate for intersex people. She is also intersex, though she only discovered this at the age of nineteen after gaining access to her medical records. Doctors had convinced her parents that her undescended testes were ovaries and that they were likely to become cancerous; they were surgically removed when she was seventeen. She later learned that she had XY chromosomes and Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, the most common form of intersex. The expansion of advocacy organizations and websites dealing with intersex issues coincided with her education and early career, making her an ideal and compassionate participant-observer of this phase of intersex history in the ...

  • Gay Is Good: The Life and Letters of Gay Rights Pioneer Franklin Kameny
           ed. by Michael G. Long (review)
    • Abstract: What a joy to read—and in some cases reread—the letters of pioneer gay rights activist Frank Kameny. Thanks to Michael G. Long's terrific new edited collection, Gay Is Good, one can again hear the bombastic voice of this prolific letter writer speaking truth to power. Fired from the federal government for his homosexuality in 1957 during the lavender scare, Kameny began a lifelong campaign not only to change federal government policy but ultimately to challenge homophobia in American culture. The single most effective gay rights activist in American history, he was, according to Long, "a visionary and tactical genius" who remained active in the movement for over four decades and lived to be celebrated for his many ...

  • Reforming Sodom: Protestants and the Rise of Gay Rights by Heather R.
           White (review)
    • Abstract: Whether in reference to the history of sexuality in general or LGBT history in particular, historians of modern American sexuality are only beginning to understand how religion has been a major force in shaping the modern sexual order. An emergent conversation is moving historians of sexuality beyond a pervasive and simplistic historical framework that stereotypes religion as an unchanging, residual, and conservative monolith that is opposed to LGBT politics, secular modernity, and sexual liberalism.1 Heather R. White's beautifully written and immaculately researched book, Reforming Sodom: Protestants and the Rise of Gay Rights, is therefore a crucial intervention in the field. Not only does White offer a primer ... Read More

  • Classroom Wars: Language, Sex, and the Making of Modern Political Culture
           by Natalia Mehlman Petrzela (review)
    • Abstract: Much has been written on the history of sex education in the United States, particularly with reference to the conservative movement in California.1 The unique contribution of Natalia Mehlman Petrzela's Classroom Wars arises from its success at combining two levels of analysis: a study of the culture wars through the lens of the local debates of two national reform policies; and the juxtaposition of seemingly remote policies—bilingual Spanish language and sex education. The first of these was federally funded and was an antipoverty initiative that was supported by ethnic minorities, while the second was locally financed and was supported by white sexual liberals. This comparison provides interesting insights into ... Read More
