Age and Sex

Edited by Michel Bozon and Juliette Rennes

Sexuality is age-related, as we are reminded by legal regulations, medical categories and literary and artistic production. Through articles concerned with such topics as eroticism in Archaic Greece, the medical invention of menopause in modern times, debates in the 1970s about the sexuality of minors, and homo-eroticism in post-Maoist China, this issue demonstrates how age- and sexuality-related norms contribute differently in every historical period to the definition and re-formulation of gender norms.
