Summary

A primary or ancillary textbook for anthropology and sociology courses related to gender and sexuality. It is basic enough for introductory undergraduate courses, yet it could also be used at more advanced levels, including graduate level courses.

Constructing Sexualities: Readings in Sexuality, Gender, and Culture is a collection of articles--classic and current--that address the relationships between sexuality, gender, and culture. Designed to introduce students to a broad range of relevant ideas and theories and to encourage critical thinking on a variety of sexuality and gender topics, this reader provides students with materials that will aid them in formulating their own thoughts on sexualities, gender, and culture.

Each article in this reader has been carefully chosen (and student-tested) in terms of readability and interest. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach, including works by anthropologists, psychologists, activists, biologists, physicians, historians and sociologists. The readings include classics works by Ruth Benedict and Bronislaw Malinowski, as well recent works by scholars such as Jared Diamond, Anne Fausto-Sterling, and Evelyn Blackwood.
