Sexuality remains a hotly debated subject, nowhere more so than in education. This perceptive and balanced book shows that discussions of sexuality and schooling can be simultaneously polarizing and democratizing. Disputing the Subject of Sex examines controversies over sex, AIDS, and gay-inclusive multicultural education, which offer especially fruitful opportunities to explore instances when community membership, schooling, and sexuality have collided. Rather than choosing sides, this book uses case studies, interviews with queer youth, and analysis of curricular texts to help readers understand how power dynamics play out in educational controversies and how they can guide us to new ideas about students' abilities to learn and relate ethically to one another about the subject of sex.

Scott Richardson gives us a finely detailed experiential account of how gender and teaching are woven together in public schools. Through his own memories and the narrativized experiences of his research subjects, Richardson demonstrates both the institutional benefits associated with being male and the fragility of masculinity. Membership in the “Boys’ Club” of hypermasculinity requires constant checking, surveillance, and choices that fit within the narrow range of dominant masculinity (so well detailed by R. W. Connell). Richardson’s causal style parallels the ease with which men in leadership and teaching positions articulate their allegiance to gender norms and one another, and in effect, set critique of such gender norms above comment: it’s just the way things are done. - Cris Mayo, Associate Professor of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership & Gender and Women’s Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Faculty Director of the Odyssey Project; author of Disputing the Subject of Sex: Sexuality and Public School Controversies. Scott Richardson has written a provocative work that lifts the veil and explores a secret space hiding in plain sight in every school in America. The taboo is gender, and for teachers who often feel bound and gagged, unseen and unheard, Richardson’s efforts offer a life-altering experience that will change the way we understand classrooms. eleMENtary School: (hyper)masculinity in a Feminized Context is both forbidden fruit and a small masterpiece. - William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar, University of Illinois at Chicago (retired); founder of the Center for Youth and Society; author of To Teach: The Journey of a Teacher, and co-author-editor of The Handbook of Social Justice in Education with T. Quinn & D. Stovall. eleMENtary School tells the important and untold story of teachers’ enactments of normative masculinity. Through vivid and compelling accounts of male teachers like Dru, Alex and Owen we learn about how contemporary definitions of masculinity prevent teachers from fulfilling their potential as educators, as colleagues and as role models. Only by reading carefully a documented analysis like these can we begin to critically examine the way in which we can encourage male teachers to develop what Scott Richardson calls an “ethic of care,” that supports gender equality, rather than allowing them to continue to engage in damaging practices of normative masculinity. - CJ Pascoe, Assistant Professor of Sociology; author of Dude You’re a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School and Anas, Mias and Wannas: Identity and Community in a Pro-ana Subculture. Scott Richardson's eleMENtary School: (hyper)masculinity in a Feminized Context is a remarkable innovative contribution to teacher lore, narrative inquiry, and gender studies. Readers cannot experience this book without pondering, questioning, rethinking, and reconstructing their perspective on education and its socio-sexual and political milieu. Surely, that is one of the most laudable consequences of a scholarly contribution in education. I urge educators at all levels to let this book have impact on their outlooks. - William H. Schubert, Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Curriculum & Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago; former Director the Teacher Lore Project; co-author-editor of Teacher Lore: Learning from Our Own Experience with W. Ayers, and author of Love, Justice and Education. Scott Richardson is an Assistant Professor of Educational Foundations, Women’s Studies faculty member, and co-founder of the Sexuality & Gender Institute at Millersville University.

Sex and the Eighteenth century Man

Sex is noticeably absent from our contemporary obsession with histories chronicling the founding generations, the Revolutionary War, or the struggles of the early colonists. Moreover, it is rarely associated with colonial men. After all, most would assume that masculinity is the stuff of politics, commerce, or hard physical labor. But Thomas Foster turns this conventional portrait on its head. Vividly using court records, newspapers, sermons, and private papers from Massachusetts, he shows that sex—understood as a mix of behaviors, desires, and identities associated with eroticism—was a crucial component of the colonial understanding of the qualities considered befitting for a man. Sex and the Eighteenth-Century Man begins by examining how men, as heads of households, ultimately held responsibility for sex within marriage and the sexual behaviors of dependents and household members. Foster then turns to how sex solidified bonds in the community, including commercial ties among men. Starkly challenging current views, the book details early understandings of sexual orientation and a surprising number of stereotypes until now believed to originate a century later, including those of the black rapist and the unmanly sodomite—figures that underscore norms of white male heterosexuality. As this engrossing study shows, we cannot understand the problems associated with the idea of manhood in America today without coming to terms with our past. "This is an innovative contribution to our growing knowledge of sexual identities in eighteenth-century America. Foster frames a discussion of same-sex sexuality in the context of a rich body of evidence for such 'nascent sexual types' as the effeminate fop, the bachelor and the sodomite. The gems he has found in Massachusetts newspapers and court testimony make this an absorbing, well-argued work." —Alfred Young, author of Masquerade: The Life and Times of Deborah Sampson, Continental Soldier "In this thoroughly researched and well-crafted book, Tom Foster shows convincingly that American notions of sexuality and manliness have long been linked in complex ways. He has uncovered a history that we need to know—a history that exposes the roots of many contemporary attitudes toward masculinity." —Mary Beth Norton, author of Founding Mothers & Fathers: Gendered Power and the Forming of American Society "Thomas Foster's intriguing book reveals what sex meant to eighteenth-century men. He argues persuasively that all matters concerning sexuality, including premarital fornication, marital sex, infidelity, same-sex intimacy, desire, impotency, sexual violence, and interracial sex, were linked to ideals of masculinity. Sex and the Eighteenth-Century Man shows impressive range." —Elizabeth Reis, author of Damned Women: Sinners and Witches in Puritan New England "Tom Foster has given us a bold new interpretation of the importance of male sexuality to Puritan society. Sex, he reveals, was at the center of eighteenth-century understandings of ideal and deviant manhood—presenting a world where ideal manhood was constructed against nascent sexual types of the sexually suspect bachelor, the dangerous black rapist, and the effeminate sodomite - and demonstrating that 'inner states of desire' contributed to the identities early American men fashioned for themselves. Skillfully researched and gracefully written, Sex and the Eighteenth- Century Man makes an important contribution to the history of sexuality and the historical study of manhood in America." —Clare A. Lyons, author of Sex among the Rabble: An Intimate History of Gender and Power in the Age of Revolution "Such rich rhetorical material makes it clear that Foster chose his evidence with an eye toward not only illuminating readers, but—rarity of rarities in the historical profession—entertaining them as well." —The Texas Observer, review in the January 12th issue Thomas A. Foster teaches in the department of history at DePaul University. He lives in Chicago, Illinois.

While ideas about mutable or ambiguous sexuality provoked fear and fascination, they also served Victorian middle-class ideology by offering 'scientific' ways of constructing racial, class and national identity in terms of the body.
