What impact does the increasingly public character of personal life have on our sense of ourselves and on how we view our own intimate choices? To navigate our way through a world in which people's private lives are so often subject to public scrutiny and debate, and in which the public sphere is increasingly pluralized and contested, we must broaden our understanding of what it means to be a citizen. Through the idea of "intimate citizenship," Plummer sets an important agenda for the years to come.
Ken Plummer has an international reputation as a distinguished scholar of social interaction and human sexuality. He is professor of sociology at the University of Essex in England, and the author of Telling Sexual Stories, Sexual Stigma, and Documents of Life, and founding editor of the journal Sexualities.
