By: United Nations (creator)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
In 2004, the African Gender Institute ran a continental research project, Mapping Sexualities, among the objectives of which was the development of a research methodology suited to carrying out in-depth case studies of the dynamics of gender and contemporary sexual cultures in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda. This book is the result of that research. The chapters cover broad-ranging issues and include questions about what it means to research topics that are unpopular or fraught with the sense of the taboo that underpins much work in sexualities and gender studies. Overall, the diverse pieces within the collection offer the opportunity to see qualitative research not as the 'poor cousin' of quantitative studies but as a zone which raises intellectual and political challenges.
Jane Bennett is an associate professor and the director of the African Gender Institute based at the University of Cape Town. Charmaine Pereira teaches in the Sociology Department of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
