The Education of Eros A History of Education and the Problem of Adolescent Sexuality

by Dennis L. (Miami University, USA) Carlson

Part of the Studies in Curriculum Theory Series Series

The Education of Eros A History of Education and the Problem of Adolescent Sexuality Synopsis

The Education of Eros is the first and only comprehensive history of sexuality education and the problem of adolescent sexuality from the mid-20th century to the beginning of the 21st. It explores how professional health educators, policy makers, and social and religious conservatives differed in their approaches, and battled over what gets taught about sexuality in schools, but all shared a common understanding of the adolescent body and adolescent desire as a problem that required a regulatory and disciplinary education. It also looks the rise of new social movements in civil society and the academy in the last half of the 20th century that began to re-frame the problem of adolescent sexuality in a language of rights, equity, and social justice. Situated within critical social theories of sexuality, this book offers a tool for re-framing the conversation about adolescent sexuality and reconstructing the meaning of sexuality education in a democratic society.
