Education and Sexualities, Hardback Book

Education and Sexualities Hardback

Edited by Peter Aggleton

Part of the Major Themes in Education series


Both from the point of view of the experiences of different groups of students, and also with respect to the form that education about sexuality, sex, and relationships should take, education and sexuality raises complex questions and provokes heated-sometimes furious-debate.

This four-volume collection offers an authoritative overview of key issues within this rapidly developing field.

Under the editorship of Peter Aggleton (editor-in-chief of the international journal, Sex Education), the collection covers a wide range of contemporary issues and concerns, including: the sexualities curriculum; `politics and pleasure'; classroom processes and dynamics; sexual and gender diversity in the classroom; gender and sexual violence in schools and colleges; and bullying, victimization and abuse.

Special attention is also given to enduring topics, such as the content and context of sexualtiy education; the age at which it should take place; faith and religion; politics and political controversies; and the science and ethics of sexualities education. With a comprehensive introduction written by Peter Aggleton, alongside section introductions prepared by well known scholars within the field, Education and Sexualities is a key addition to Routledge's Major Themes in Education series.

It is destined to be valued by educationalists and scholars working in related areas as a vital one-stop research tool.
