A Dangerous Knowing: Sexuality, Pedagogy and Popular Culture

This book is an exhilarating and important addition to the literature on sexuality and on education. An unusually international collection–with contributions on Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa, the UK and the United States–it includes chapters written both by internationally known leaders in the field and by exciting newcomers. The book challenges conventional ways of thinking both about sexuality and about pedagogy, with sections on myth-making, identity, globalization and interventions in education. It will be a key text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of social and cultural theory, queer studies, gender and women’s studies and education.
