MLA 2021 Panel: Science on the Margins: Rethinking the Global Histories of Sexology

Sunday, March 15, 2020

This panel mobilizes the semantic compass of the concept “margin” to rethink the global histories of sexual science. Essentialist accounts of sexology have concentrated on its origins in the Western, primarily German, academy as a distinct “Sexualwissenschaft” or institutionalized science of sex that effected profound shifts in sexual knowledge and subjectivity. And yet sexology was often itself a marginal form of knowledge that emerged at the edges of more well-established disciplines like biomedicine, psychiatry, anthropology, zoology, anthropometry and propelled technologies of endocrinology, eugenics, and population control.
