A Psychosocial Manifesto

The contemporary study of sexuality too often finds itself
at an impasse, conceptualizing sexuality either psychologically or
sociologically: sexologists and psychologists have tended to point
to the biological origins of sexuality underpinned by hormones,
drives and, most recently, genetics; in contrast, historians and
sociologists point to the social field as the defining force that
shapes the meanings given to sexuality and sexual experience.


Confronting the limitations and challenges this impasse poses,
Katherine Johnson argues for a psychosocial approach that rethinks
the relationship between psychic and social realms in the field of
sexuality, without reducing it to either. Weaving through an
expanse of theoretical and empirical examples drawn from sociology,
psychology, queer and cultural studies, she produces an innovative,
transdisciplinary perspective on sexual identities, subjectivities
and politics that makes an original contribution to key debates
ranging from identity politics and gay marriage, to mental health
?risks? and queer youth suicide.


Embracing ideas from developmental psychology, social
constructionist sociology, social and critical psychology,
psychoanalysis and queer theory, this original book will be
necessary reading for students and scholars of sexuality across the
social sciences.
