Looking at how factors such as religion, environment, social constraints, law, work, leisure, economics and medicine bear upon the human body, this series moves beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries within gender and sexuality studies and cultural history.
The series encourages a wide variety of work that considers the body, gender and sex in society and culture, from across the world and from the medieval period to the end of the twentieth century.
