Summary and Info
Middleton presents a Foucauldian perspective in a manner that is clear and unmystified, demonstrating how the use of such a perspective can illuminate the way power works, negatively and positively, in daily events. Drawing on Foucault in combination with life-history narratives from the author’s research interviews and autobiographical experience, the text addresses: changing theories about sexuality; ideas about sex enmeshed in various pedagogies; and questions raised by the disciplining of sexuality as educational environments move into cyberspace. Encouraging the reader to see why things we take for granted about sexuality and the body need to be rethought, this book resonates powerfully with memories and experiences that will strike a chord with educators and students around the world.
