The founding of the History of Sexuality seminar at the Institute of Historical
Research, London, marks a recognition that the field has grown enormously
during recent years. The new seminar reverses the lacuna in sustained seminar
provision in London in this field. While the history of sexuality is a diverse area of
study that refuses straightforward categorisation, it nonetheless focuses broadly
on men and women as sexual beings in the past, on the categories of
heterosexuality and homosexuality through which sexual selfhood has been
experienced, and, moving beyond this binary, on other historical expressions of
gender identity and sexual experience. The History of Sexuality seminar at the
Institute explores historical perspectives on themes as varied as sexual reform
and identity-based movements, sexuality and urban space, medical and
criminological discourses on sexuality, and representations of sexuality. It also
explores the historiography of the field, along with those varied methodological
and theoretical approaches to the study of the sexual past that have shaped the
history of sexuality as a sub-discipline. Finally, the seminar provides a forum for
an exploration of the intersections between the history of sexuality and other
related academic practices - including those of gender, feminism, psychoanalysis,
and the study of the emotions.
