About the Journal des anthropologues

The main aim of the Journal des Anthropologues is to encourage the distribution of recent anthropological work concerning the transformation of the contemporary world and the new research objects. Each issue is based on a comparative perspective, bringing together research in a variety of cultural areas. There is analysis of the discipline’s practices and evolution, also from pluri-disciplinary points of view. Careful attention is paid to epistemological aspects and fieldwork. With these directions in mind, the journal’s editorial committee has published works by well-established researchers as well as young researchers exploring new fields of enquiry.

Dettes de sexe ?

This volume is based on two proposals. It applies the Maussian triptych “Give - Receive - Give back” to the analysis of sexuality, with particular emphasis on its temporal dynamics, which introduces a phase of debt – between the moment of the gift and the moment of the counter-gift. The aim is to focus analyses, not on sexuality considered as an isolate, nor even on types of relationships it entails (affective, economic, etc.) but on its nesting within the specific context of intimacy. This allows to reveal the major role of this phase of debt, which is not to be interpreted in the same way, on one hand according to the structure of the context of intimacy (conjugal, playful, etc.), on the other hand, according to the type of nesting of sexuality within this context We will discover even forms of sexualization of intimacy not including, in the strict sense, sexual relations.
