The Politics of Ending the Death Penalty for Sodomy in Britain Charles Upchurch

The Public Space of Freemason Women in France, 1744-1944 James Smith Allen

UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS

TEMPLE UNIVERSITY PRESS

Explores the two-hundred-year struggle to ini�ate women as full par�cipants in the masonic brotherhood that shared in the rise of France’s civil society and its “civic morality” on behalf of women’s rights.

In nineteenth-century England, sodomy was punishable by death. The last execu�ons for this private, consensual act were in 1835, but the law was not successfully changed un�l 1861. This groundbreaking book recounts how the law was almost ended in 1841. Excludes Asia Pacific

Delves into the history of the photo-book, the materiality of the photographic image on the page, and the cultural significance of landscape to explore how women writers and photographers revise and reimagine landscape, iden�ty, and history in the U.S. West.

The history of the Inter-American Commission of Women: the first all-female, government-affiliated body to deal specifically with women’s civil and poli�cal rights in a transna�onal arena. Wamsley’s analysis at once addresses a void in scholarship and interweaves the history of Pan Americanism, foreign rela�ons, and imperialism with that of women.

Presents for the first �me in a book-length format the opportunity to hear the refugee women’s own words about struggle and persecu�on—and of an enduring spirit that defies a difficult reality. Their stories speak of nearly insurmountable social, economic, physical, and emo�onal challenges, and provide a dis�nct perspec�ve of the Syrian conflict.

Brings together two key moments in welfare history—the advent of the Freedmen’s Bureau during Reconstruc�on and the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconcilia�on Act—showing how each targeted Black women through nega�ve stereotyping and norma�ve assump�ons about gender, race, and ci�zenship.

The rise of mass media culture made fashion a vehicle for women to assert claims over their bodies, femininity, and social roles. Rabinovitch-Fox examines how clothes empowered women— especially those barred from posi�ons of influence due to race or class. Excludes SE Asia, Indian sc & ANZ

INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS

UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS

The idea of brotherhood has been an important philosophical concept for understanding community, equality, and jus�ce. In Gendering Modern Jewish Thought, Andrea Dara Cooper offers a gendered reading that challenges the key figures of the all-male fraternity of twen�eth-century Jewish philosophy to open up to the feminine.

The first comprehensive, full-length history to explore how the original Equal Rights Amendment conflict served as the vehicle through which Americans not only forged new concep�ons of ci�zenship, but also renewed the jus�fica�on for sex-specific treatment.

This community memoir connects the deeply personal with the uncompromisingly poli�cal in telling the stories of more than thirty Asian American AIDS ac�vists. Amid the fear and grief, they created an infrastructure of care that centered the most s�gma�zed and provided diverse immigrant communi�es with the resources they needed.

The contributors to Long Term use the tension between the popular embrace and legaliza�on of same-sex marriage and the queer cri�que of homonorma�vity as an opportunity to examine the myriad forms of queer commitments and their dura�onal aspect.

DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS

Smitha Radhakrishnan explores India’s microfinance industry, which in the last two decades has come to saturate the everyday lives of women in the name of state-led efforts to promote financial inclusion and women’s empowerment. Despite this favorable language, she argues, microfinance in India does not provide a marketoriented development interven�on, even though it may appear to help women borrowers.

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON

Weaves together autobiography, ethnography, interviews, memories, and fieldwork to recast narra�ves that con�nuously erase Black Puerto Rican women as agents of social change. Lloréns serves as an “ethnographer of home” as she brings to life the powerful histories and tes�monies of a marginalized, disavowed community.

Sex work occupies a legally gray space in Johannesburg, and police a�tudes towards it are inconsistent and largely unregulated. I. India Thusi’s ethnography considers how sex work is policed and how it should be policed—and exposes the limita�ons of dominant feminist arguments regarding its legal treatment.

In Poe�c Opera�ons ar�st and theorist Micha Cárdenas considers contemporary digital media, artwork, and poetry in order to ar�culate trans of color strategies of safety and survival. Drawing on decolonial theory, women of color feminism, media theory, and queer of color cri�que, Cárdenas develops a method she calls algorithmic analysis.

In this special issue, contributors theorize sexual labor as both work and a site of labor resistance and transforma�on. Rather than cri�quing sex work itself, they consider what scholars of migra�on, sexuality, digital labor, and service work can learn from sex workers’ interven�ons into their own condi�ons, including cri�cal insights into power and control, gendered labor, and collec�ve organizing.

UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS

In Salvific Manhood Ernest L. Gibson III offers a thema�cally daring and theore�cally provoca�ve way to understand the hidden connec�ons between James Baldwin’s novels. Gibson presents a queering of salva�on, a nuanced approach that views redemp�on through the lenses of gender and sexuality. 8

As a field of study, sexology emerged in the nineteenth century bringing together academics, non-medical professionals, and reformers in Europe and North America who sought to systema�cally study human sexuality and sexual behavior. The contributors to this special issue engage with the contemporary material and aesthe�c detritus of the sexological project and ask how the remnants of its history persist to the present.

Award-winning scholars Jefferson and Johnson ingeniously weave together long-forgo�en materials from presiden�al libraries and private archives to reveal the inspiring and untold history of the women considered—but not selected—for the US Supreme Court. A must-read for those seeking posi�ons of power and for the powerful who select them. Excludes SE Asia & ANZ

In the mid-1980s, the shortage of men caused by the Indochina Wars prompted some Vietnamese women to pursue single motherhood by “asking for a child” (xin con)—asking men to get them pregnant outside marriage. Phinney explores the prac�ce of xin con and how it was embraced by the state.

Nicole Charles frames the refusal of AfroBarbadians to immunize their daughters with the HPV vaccine as suspicion, showing that this suspicion is based in concrete histories of government mistrust and coercive medical prac�ces on colonized peoples.
