dc.description.abstractIn this book, Jonathan Alexander argues for the development of students' sexual literacy. Such a literacy is not just concerned with developing fluency in sexuality as a "hot" topic, but with understanding the intimate interconnectedness of sexuality and literacy in Western culture. Alexander unpacks what he sees as a crucial dimension of literacy: the fundamental ways in which sexuality has become a key component of contemporary literate practice, of the stories we tell about ourselves, our communities, and our political investments"--jacket.
