This volume aims to break new ground in the fields of sexuality and gender studies. Its framework is grounded in three interconnected principles: that ideas and knowledge can have transformative political effects; that theory must be firmly grounded in ‘real world’ conditions and experiences; and that the investigation of sexuality and its intersections with gender and other roles, identities and structural contexts must lie at the heart of social and political analysis. It offers perspectives and case analyses that, taken together, contribute to the development of new approaches to thinking about sexuality and its relationship to gender that go beyond existing theories and practices.
