via Wiley-Blackwell:

Historicising Gender and Sexuality features a diverse collection of essays that shed new light on the historical intersections between gender and sexuality across time and space.

  • Demonstrates both the particularities of specific formulations of gender and sexuality and the nature of the relationship between the categories themselves

  • Presents evidence that careful and contextualised analysis of the shifting relationship of gender and sexuality illuminates broader historical processes

Two essays may be of special interest to followers of #ADPhD:

Marisa J. Fuentes, “Power and Historical Figuring: Rachael Pringle Polgreen’s Troubled Archive,” in Historicising Gender and Sexuality: eds. Kevin P. Murphy and Jennifer M. Spear (Malden, MA: Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), 38-58.

Brooke N. Newman, “Gender, Sexuality and the Formation of Racial Identities in the Eighteenth-Century Anglo-Caribbean World,” in Historicising Gender and Sexuality: eds. Kevin P. Murphy and Jennifer M. Spear (Malden, MA: Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), 59-76.
