Sex and Sexualities in Ireland : Interdisciplinary Perspectives,  Book

Sex and Sexualities in Ireland : Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Edited by Barbara Gornicka, Mark Doyle

Part of the Genders and Sexualities in the Social Sciences series


This edited collection provides an invaluable resource of seventeen chapters from a wide range of academic disciplines.

These chapters place sex and sexualities in Ireland in historical context and take the reader through the structural changes that have transformed the expression of sexuality in Ireland from one of self-denial to self-expression.

The collection does not however unquestionably assume a linear narrative of progress: new issues and challenges are also addressed throughout.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars from a range of disciplines including sociology, social policy, history, media, gender studies and psychology.

The collection is divided into six separate but interlinked thematic sections: Sexualities in Historical Irish Contexts, Young Adults, Sexual Health, and Education, Sexual Practices and Health, Minority Sexualities and Genders, Sex Work in Ireland and Activism and Contestation.
