Studies in Gender and Sexuality is a response to the excitement attendant to recent research and writing by scholars and clinicians alike. It provides a forum for examining gender and sexuality that is both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary; in this way it seeks to broaden the purview - theoretical, clinical, and cultural--of all its readers and to promote constructive exchanges among them. As clinicians and scholars who have written and practiced at the intersection of feminist theory and clinical psychoanalysis for the past two decades, the Editors are particularly interested in those areas of controversy that invite the divergent perspectives and insights of different disciplines. Early issues of the journal focus on transgender identities and intersexuality; contemporary readings of the category of perversion; puberty and adolescence revised and revisited; and the intersections among class, race, and gender in theory, culture, and the clinical situation. The primary goal of Studies in Gender and Sexuality is to promote dialogue on these and other timely topics among clinicians, researchers, and theorists. Consonant with this goal, the journal also publishes related work from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, where questions involving gender and sexuality are currently in lively debate. SGS is directed equally to clinicians (psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers), developmental researchers, and academics working in cultural anthropology, family history, feminism, gender studies, queer studies, social history, sociology, and women's studies, all of whom share an interest in contemporary perspectives on gender and sexuality. The journal is open to a variety of theoretical clinical, and methodological approaches to these broad topics consistent with its goal of promoting interdisciplinary dialogue among contributors and readers.
