Informationen zum Autor Nicole Vitellone is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Liverpool Klappentext Focusing on the US, British and Australian contexts, Object matters addresses the impact of the discourse of safer sex on our lives and in particular the lives of adolescents. Addressing AIDS public health campaigns, sex education policies, sex research on adolescence and debates on the eroticization of safer sex, the author looks at how the condom has affected our awareness of ourselves, of one another and our futures. In her examination of the condom in the late twentieth century, Vitellone critically engages with a range of literatures including those concerned with sexuality, adolescence, methods, gender and the body. This book will be of interest to sex educators, academics as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students working in the areas of Sociology, History, Cultural Studies and Gender Studies.
