Sexuality and Gender at Home : Experience, Politics, Transgression, Hardback Book

Description

Sexuality and Gender at Home is the first book to explore the meanings and experiences of home through the framework of sexuality.

Looking at a broad spectrum of sexuality, gender and domesticity, it examines the many ways in which home is constructed, performed and experienced in relation to sexuality and gender.

Considering identity issues such as age, class, ethnicity and gender, the authors problematize intimacy and question conventional ways of thinking about allegedly 'private' home space.

Comprehensive introductions to each of the book's three sections - on Intimacy and Home, Queering Home, Beyond Home - provide a coherent overview of the existing literature as well as additional historical and cultural context.

Fourteen chapters present ground-breaking research and insights into sexuality, gender and home across culture, time and space.

Written by academics from a range of subject disciplines, chapters are based on research covering countries including Australia, France, Sweden, the UK, the USA, Guyana, Israel, and Singapore.This highly original text is the ideal starting point for anyone wishing to get to grips with the emerging field of sexuality, gender and home and will particularly appeal to researchers and students in anthropology, architecture, gender studies, sociology, and human geography.
