Icon Books #ad - Icon Books Company. Activist-academic meg john barker and cartoonist Julia Scheele illuminate the histories of queer thought and LGBTQ+ action in this groundbreaking non-fiction graphic novel. A kaleidoscope of characters from the diverse worlds of pop-culture, film, activism and academia guide us on a journey through the ideas, people and events that have shaped ‘queer theory’.

From identity politics and gender roles to privilege and exclusion, Queer explores how we came to view sex, gender and sexuality in the ways that we do; how these ideas get tangled up with our culture and our understanding of biology, psychology and sexology; and how these views have been disputed and challenged.

Queer: A Graphic History #ad - Along the way we look at key landmarks which shift our perspective of what’s ‘normal’, which reinterprets characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the play Wicked, such as Alfred Kinsey’s view of sexuality as a spectrum between heterosexuality and homosexuality, Judith Butler’s view of gendered behavior as a performance, or moments in Casino Royale when we’re invited to view James Bond with the kind of desiring gaze usually directed at female bodies in mainstream media.

Medical Bondage: Race, Gender, and the Origins of American Gynecology

#ad
#ad
University of Georgia Press #ad - Medical bondage moves between southern plantations and northern urban centers to reveal how nineteenth-century American ideas about race, and status influenced doctor-patient relationships in sites of healing like slave cabins, medical colleges, health, and hospitals. It is also no secret that these nineteenth-century gynecologists performed experimental caesarean sections, ovariotomies, and obstetric fistula repairs primarily on poor and powerless women.

Medical bondage breaks new ground by exploring how and why physicians denied these women their full humanity yet valued them as “medical superbodies” highly suited for medical experimentation. In medical bondage, cooper owens examines a wide range of scientific literature and less formal communications in which gynecologists created and disseminated medical fictions about their patients, such as their belief that black enslaved women could withstand pain better than white “ladies.

Medical Bondage: Race, Gender, and the Origins of American Gynecology #ad - Even as they were advancing medicine, men and women, for decades to come, these doctors were legitimizing, groundless theories related to whiteness and blackness, and the inferiority of other races or nationalities.

The accomplishments of pioneering doctors such as John Peter Mettauer, James Marion Sims, and Nathan Bozeman are well documented. Icon Books Company.

Intimate Frontiers: Sex, Gender, and Culture in Old California Histories of the American Frontier

#ad
#ad
University of New Mexico Press #ad - This book reveals how powerful undercurrents of sex, gender, and culture helped shape the history of the American frontier from the 1760s to the 1850s. Their efforts included imposing all the stabilizing customs of whichever society dominated California--during the Hispanic period, missionaries railed against vices, laws regulated prostitution, arranged marriages and concern for family honor were the norm; among the Anglos, and "proper" women were brought in to help "civilize" the frontier.

Used book in Good Condition. Icon Books Company. The other theme explored is the reaction of citizens who abhorred the loss of moral standards and sought to suppress excess. In these settings hurtado explores courtship, chinese, marriage, Hispanic, reproduction, and family life as a way to understand how men and women--whether Native American, Anglo American, or of mixed blood--fit into or reshaped the roles and identities set by their race and gender.

Intimate Frontiers: Sex, Gender, and Culture in Old California Histories of the American Frontier #ad - Hurtado introduces two themes in delineating his intimate frontiers. Fortune was the horse, youth in the saddle, dissipation the track, and desire the spur. Not all the times were good or giddy, and in the tragedy of a teenage domestic who died in a botched abortion or a brutalized Indian woman we see the seamy underside of gender relations on the frontier.

Perseus Books Group. Looking at california under three flags--those of Spain, on overland trails and sea journeys, at mining camps, and the United States--Hurtado resurrects daily life in the missions, Mexico, and in San Francisco.
