  • Editor's Note: Annette Timm
    • Abstract: On behalf of the entire editorial board of the Journal of the History of Sexuality, I would like to congratulate one of our own, Elise Chenier, for winning the Best Article prize of the Canadian Committee on the History of Sexuality for her May 2018 JHS article "Love-Politics: Lesbian Wedding Practices in Canada and the United States from the 1920s to the 1970s." As the prize citation notes, this article provides a "complex and provocative historical investigation of same-sex wedding practices [in Canada and the United States] as a form of activism and love-politics, using a theoretical formulation drawn from Jennifer Nash's work on black feminist thought. … Chenier's illuminating and significant contribution ...

  • Sodomy and Criminal Justice in the Parlement of Paris, ca. 1540–ca.
           1700
    • Abstract: During a series of interrogations in late 1588, the magistrates of the criminal chamber of the Parlement of Paris tried Alexandre Jouan on appeal from the subordinate court of the Châtelet in Paris for the "extraordinary crime" and the "sin" of "sodomy." Noël Biresse, who had been driving his cart outside Paris by the gate of Saint-Antoine, testified that he saw Jouan, a merchant who sold ashes, "lying with a baker in the ditch, on top of the man, with his shirt pulled off." At first Biresse "thought Jouan was with a wench, and he wanted to see what they were doing, but when they stood up he realized that it was a man who took a handful of grass to wipe himself down after he had been underneath this man [Jouan]." ...

  • Mandrake and Monarchy in Early Modern Spain
    • Abstract: In 1673 Tomás de Murillo y Velarde, a personal physician to the Spanish royal family, published a treatise on medicinal plants entitled Tratado de raras, y peregrinas yervas (Treaty on rare and migrating herbs). His ostensible purpose was to demonstrate the differences between the medicinal plant abrotano (Artemisia abrotanum), a species in the Asteracaea family, and its lesser variant bupthalmo (another species of Asteracaea) with, as the full title announces, "some annotations" on the subject of mandrake, a plant associated with love magic and fertility.1 Murillo's "annotations" are not an afterthought to his main text, as the title insists, but instead compose roughly half his narrative. Forty-five of his 126 ... Read More

  • "This Was My Utopia": Sexual Experimentation and Masculinity in the 1960s
           Bay Area Radical Left
    • Abstract: When Black Panther Party (B P P) cofounder Huey P. Newton argued in 1970 that in order to have a chance to be free, Black people would have to discard "all these romantic, fictional fin[a]lisms, such as they're married and they live happily ever after with a white picket fence," he expressed a sentiment that was shared across the movements of the day, including the sexual and gay liberation movements.1 Amid the political ferment of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Area in the second half of the 1960s, activists from various movements experimented with utopian alternatives to the nuclear family norm. This essay deepens our understanding of the late 1960s Bay Area Left by examining how these experiments with ... Read More

  • Love, Consent, and the Sexual Script of a Victorian Affair in Dublin
    • Abstract: In January 1841 a pair of young lovers spent the night in the Downshire Hotel in Blessington, about twenty miles southwest of Dublin, Ireland. They slept in separate beds in separate rooms; nevertheless, their behavior flouted conventions. Snow trapped Mary at the hotel because the horse caravan that brought her there could not make the return journey. James, however, had his own horse and could have returned to Dublin. When he suggested that he stay with Mary, "she said no but I insisted & she yielded."1 James recorded the details of their meeting in his diary, where he also transcribed copies of the letters the pair wrote to one another. They parted ways in the morning, and, as the diary reveals, each had a ... Read More

  • The Danger of "Moral Sabotage": Western Prisoners of War on Trial for
           Homosexual Relations in Nazi Germany
    • Abstract: In May 1944 a German military tribunal (Feldgericht) accused ten British prisoners of war (POWs) of having performed homosexual acts with a sixteen-year-old German boy at the Heydebreck chemical factory, not far from Auschwitz. According to the prosecutor, the POWs had lured the boy into a nearby forest and bribed him with chocolate and cigarettes. Two of the prisoners confessed, but the seven others who attended the trial denied the charges (one POW could not appear because of illness). The boy, called as a witness, identified three of the denying prisoners without hesitation but was tentative about the others. The three POWs the boy had recognized received punishments ranging from one to one and a half years in a ... Read More

           America by Guy Davidson (review)
    • Abstract: Guy Davidson's Categorically Famous: Literary Celebrity and Sexual Liberation in 1960s America offers a useful study of queer sexuality in midcentury American literary culture. Davidson examines three major queer authors—James Baldwin, Susan Sontag, and Gore Vidal—to show that their sexually ambiguous public personas helped raise homosexuality and bisexuality to "proto-visibility" in the media (4). Building on celebrity theory, Davidson demonstrates that celebrity culture's persistent concern with the private lives of notable figures allowed these famous authors to draw attention to the open secret of same-sex desire, transforming gay and lesbian intimacy into matters of public concern. Although Baldwin, Sontag ... Read More

  • The Naked Truth: Viennese Modernism and the Body by Alys X. George
           (review)
    • Abstract: The historiography of the Viennese fin de siècle has been profoundly influenced by Carl E. Schorske's Pulitzer-winning collection of essays, Fin-de-siècle Vienna: Politics and Culture, originally published in 1979. But Steven Beller, Allan Janik, Pieter Judson, Scott Spector, and others have recently called for a rethinking of the Schorskean thesis that the failure of political liberalism caused Viennese intellectuals to turn to the subjective realm of the psyche. Alys X. George's excellent interdisciplinary study is an answer to that call. By placing the body at the center of the modernist landscape, George accomplishes three extraordinary feats. First, drawing inspiration from the works of Foucauldian feminist ... Read More

  • Infrahumanisms: Science, Culture, and the Making of Modern Non/Personhood
           by Megan H. Glick (review)
    • Abstract: Infrahumanisms: Science, Culture, and the Making of Modern Non/Personhood approaches one of the fundamental questions of the humanities—what does it mean to be human'—in new ways by investigating how the category of the human has been used to effect "nonpersonhood" not only through exclusion of the nonhuman but also by way of enforcing racial, sexual, and bodily inequalities. Glick notes that "while it is commonplace to imagine other categories of difference as culturally constructed (race, gender, sexuality, and so on), it is rare to imagine species difference, or the 'human,' as a concept relevant to the formulation of differential subjectivities" (23). By investigating how science and culture depict the ... Read More

  • Unlearning Eugenics: Sexuality, Reproduction, and Disability in Post-Nazi
           Europe by Dagmar Herzog (review)
    • Abstract: The very premise of "unlearning" eugenics is a compelling one. As Daniel Kevles noted several years ago, we need to exercise constant vigilance as to the legacy of eugenics or, in his words, the operations of eugenics as a specter that haunts the current social and biological imaginary.1 In this volume, Herzog traces and maps out the effects of eugenic knowledge in the past and the present with a view to disinterring its influence and resonance for current historians and ethicists and with a specific focus on the questions of reproduction and disability.Written in a highly accessible style, the book is divided into an introduction and three chapters with extensive notes, which make up nearly half the book. The ... Read More

  • Governing Gender and Sexuality in Colonial India: The Hijra, c.
           1850–1900 by Jessica Hinchy (review)
    • Abstract: "On the 17th of August 1852, a Hijra named Bhoorah was found dead with her 'head nearly severed' in the north Indian district of Mainpuri. In the aftermath of Bhoorah's violent death, the British rulers of north India resolved that the Hijrah community should be rendered extinct" (1). Opening with this chilling episode, Jessica Hinchy's book tracks the perverse logic by which panic caused by the violent death of an individual unraveled into a quest to exterminate her entire community. The Hijra remains strangely invisible in the historiography of sex and gender in India. Hinchy sets out to rectify this situation through a close reading of part 2 of the Criminal Tribes Act of 1871, which sought to create an ... Read More

  • Sexual Politics and Feminist Science: Women Sexologists in Germany
           1900–1933 by Kirsten Leng (review)
    • Abstract: Kirsten Leng's monograph Sexual Politics and Feminist Science: Women Sexologists in Germany, 1900–1933 is an original work based on extensive archival research, and it will no doubt become an important reference point for all scholars interested in the history of sexology and its reception. Beautifully written, Leng's book puts women and the right to pleasure at the center of the historical reconstruction of sexual knowledge, moving away from the more familiar accounts of the pathologization of nonreproductive sexual behaviors. Leng breaks new ground in showing how women produced and engaged with sexual knowledge in the first three decades of the twentieth century in Germany.This critical intellectual history is ...

  • Sodomites, Pederasts, and Tribades in Eighteenth-Century France: A
           Documentary History ed. by Jeffrey Merrick (review)
    • Abstract: This book is part of a decades-long endeavor that has led Jeffrey Merrick to edit or coedit several volumes on homosexuality. As stated in the preface, Sodomites, Pederasts, and Tribades in Eighteenth-Century France is distinct from previous volumes and intended to complement forthcoming work on policing homosexuality in the prerevolutionary period. The texts translated and annotated here are arranged into two parts: "Surveillance of the Parisian Subculture," comprising police reports, letters, notes, memos, petitions, statements, and interrogations from 1722 to 1785; and "Representations of Same-Sex Relations," composed of excerpts from newspapers, secret correspondences, encyclopedias, juridical and philosophical ...

  • Polygamy: An Early American History by Sarah M. S. Pearsall (review)
    • Abstract: As the first book on the topic, Sarah M. S. Pearsall's book provides fresh insight into the complex history of early modern American polygamy, dispelling the myth that it began with the Mormons. Drawing creatively off a host of sources, from archaeology and dictionaries to diaries and religious tracts, Pearsall proves that polygamy was a mainstay of North American life long before European colonists arrived. In doing so, she convincingly argues that the ensuing conflicts over polygamy provide new perspectives into the more familiar narratives of colonial revolts, African slavery, Enlightenment ideology, and antebellum reform.Pearsall's narrative is expansive and stretches over two hundred years. Beginning in New ... Read More

  • Public City / Public Sex: Homosexuality, Prostitution, and Urban Culture
           in Nineteenth-Century Paris by Andrew Israel Ross (review)
    • Abstract: The sex trade of nineteenth-century Paris has generated a wealth of excellent scholarship in cultural and social history and in literary studies. The city's homosexual subcultures have similarly received much—if nowhere near as much—scholarly attention. In discussing one or the other phenomenon, historians have frequently noted the compelling analogies and occasional symbiosis between the sex trade and homosexual subcultures. These accounts were often prompted by explorations of the many nineteenth-century moralists and hygienists who theorized about this association (or simply saw it as obvious). Andrew Israel Ross's conceptually ambitious and thoughtprovoking book pursues these connections even further. ... Read More

  • Ovidian Transversions: "Iphis and Ianthe," 1300–1650 ed. by Patricia
           Badir, Valerie Traub, and Peggy McCracken (review)
    • Abstract: Of all the stories in Ovid's Metamorphoses, the myth of Iphis and Ianthe is one of the least familiar. Pygmalion, Narcissus, and Adonis have all become proverbial; they are familiar to many people who have never heard of Ovid. Iphis, not so much. Yet the story of Iphis and Ianthe is enormously significant for the cultural history of sexuality because it is one of the rare stories from Classical antiquity that focuses on erotic attraction between two women. It is also a story of gender transformation in which a girl becomes a boy. Iphis and Ianthe was a particularly resonant story in the early modern period and ought to be similarly resonant now. This is the convincing central argument of Ovidian Transversions, an ... Read More
