Description - Same-sex Cultures and Sexualities by Jennifer Robertson

Same-Sex Cultures and Sexualities: An Anthropological Reader demonstrates the centrality of the complicated relationship of sex, gender, and sexuality to theories of human behaviors and practices. Although heterosexuality has been interrogated and demystified, it retains normative dominance. By drawing on the multiple fresh and illuminating perspectives of anthropology, this landmark collection moves beyond other lesbian and gay studies readers by presenting a broader view of the significance of studying same-sex cultures and sexualities by presenting the lives of a range of individuals across cultural and temporal domains. Same-Sex Cultures and Sexualities offers readings from all four subfields of anthropology: cultural, biological, linguistic, and archaeological (along with historical and applied anthropology), and includes discussion of biotechnology and bioethics, health and illness, language, ethnicity, identity, politics, post/colonialism, kinship, development, and policymaking.
