Same-sex Cultures and Sexualities by Jennifer Robertson

Book Description

This book demonstrates the centrality of sex, gender, and sexuality to theories of human behaviors and practices. It moves beyond other 'lesbian and gay studies' readers by presenting a broader view of the significance of studying same-sex cultures and sexualities across cultures. It offers readings from all four subfields of anthropology: cultural, biological, linguistic, and archaeological (along with historical and applied anthropology). It includes discussion of biotechnology and bioethics, health and illness, language, ethnicity, identity, politics, post-colonialism, kinship, development, and policymaking.
