About this title

Synopsis:

Sexuality and the Unnatural in Colonial Latin America brings together a broad and exciting community of scholars to explore the history of illicit and alternative sexualities in Latin America?s colonial and early national periods. Together the essays examine how "the unnatural? came to inscribe certain sexual acts and desires as criminal and sinful, including acts officially deemed to be ?against nature??sodomy, bestiality, and masturbation?along with others that approximated the unnatural?hermaphroditism, incest, sex with the devil, solicitation in the confessional, erotic religious visions, and the desecration of holy images. In doing so, this anthology makes important and necessary contributions to the historiography of gender and sexuality. Amid the growing politicized interest in broader LGBTQ movements in Latin America, the essays also show how these legal codes endured to make their way into post-independence Latin America. 

From the Inside Flap:

"A tantalizing and fascinating collection of first-rate scholarship that interrogates the category of the natural in terms of sex and highlights new directions of historical investigation."?Martin Nesvig, author of Ideology and Inquisition: The World of the Censors in Early Mexico

"These keen essays on sexuality, the natural, and the unnatural in colonial Latin America provide a much-needed broadening of vision for all readers and researchers of sexual history." ?Jonathan Ned Katz, Co-Director, OutHistory.org

"Building on strong foundations, Tortorici brings together an impressive cast of historians who explore the edges of normative sexuality in colonial Latin America, uncovering hidden corners of private lives and the desires and passions that animated men and women. This book will become required reading for anyone interested in the history of sexuality."?Sonya Lipsett-Rivera, author of Gender and the Negotiation of Daily Life in Mexico, 1750-1856
