Series Editors

Phillip L. Hammack and Bertram J. Cohler

The purpose of this series is to foster creative scholarship on sexuality, identity, and society that integrates an appreciation for the historical grounding of sexuality research, seeks to transcend or integrate the boundaries constructed by disciplinary approaches, and takes theoretical and methodological risks to move the field forward. As such, the books presented here identify with a new kind of inquiry in sexuality research—one that moves us beyond questions of “origins” and “categories” toward the meaning of desire, experience, and identity in particular contexts. They are designed to be useful in both teaching and research.
