Love and Globalization: Transformations of Intimacy in the Contemporary World
Foyalty 135

Love and Globalization: Transformations of Intimacy in the Contemporary World (Paperback)

£44.95
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Discussions of globalization usually focus on political, economic, and technological transformations, but fail to recognize how we experience these processes in our daily lives, including our most intimate acts and practices. In this volume, anthropologists and sociologists draw on long-term ethnographic research on love, gender, and sexuality in a broad range of regions to discuss how global forces shape marriage, commercial sex, the political economy of intimacy, and lesbian and gay expressions of companionship. The richly-textured ethnographies provoke a series of questions about emerging vocabularies for friendship and romance; the adoption of cultural forms from faraway places; the emergence of new desires, pleasures, and emotions that circulate as commodities in the global marketplace; and the ways economic processes shape public and private expressions of sexual intimacy.

Mark B. Padilla is in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Michigan. Jennifer S. Hirsch, Miguel Munoz-Laboy, Robert Sember, and Richard G. Parker are in the Department of Sociomedical Sciences in the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University.
