Sexology and Translation: Scientific and Cultural Encounters in the Modern World, 1860-1930
A two-day symposium examining the transnational and cultural dimensions of the sexological archive.
Sexology and Translation turns attention to the transnational and cultural dimensions of the sexological archive. Focusing on the first phase of sexology, c.1860-1930, the symposium brings into dialogue an international interdisciplinary group of experts from literature, history, cultural studies, sociology and politics, who will map, compare and examine alongside each other a diverse range of nationally-specific discourses of ‘sex’ (understood to mean sexuality and gender) and their transnational connections.
