Thinking Sex with the Early Moderns


Valerie Traub
Faculty Info


What do we know about early modern sex? And how do we know it? How, when, and why does sex become history? In "Thinking Sex with the Early Moderns," Valerie Traub addresses these questions and, in doing so, reorients the ways in which historians and literary critics, feminists and queer theorists approach sexuality and its history.
