Sexuality Studies

Sanjay Srivastava (Editor) Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society

The volume addresses the relationship between sex, gender and sexuality and probes aspects relating to history, legality, religion, class and politics and power. It takes up themes such as colonial sexologists particularly their writings, pulp literature, family courts, queer imagery in the Hindu nationalistic imagination and laws on prostitution and perversion, and depiction of romance in the Indian mass media. It examines the established patterns of research on sexuality in India and the main themes that sexuality studies have been concerned with. It delves into issues concerning risk and sexuality in the context of globalisation. Presenting a nuanced view of sexual cultures in India, it views sexuality in the context of the development discourse with specific reference to contemporary Kerala.
