Metasex - The Discourse Of Intimacy And Transgression (eBook)
de Nassenstein Nico Nassenstein e Storch Anne Storch
Sobre o livro
This study focuses on the language around sexuality and discourses about sex, labeled by the authors as metasex, from a broad crosslinguistic perspective. Unlike many existing studies on sexting that predominantly take into account the linguistic practices of teenagers often located in the Global North, this book offers a more holistic approach by discussing Southern concepts of body parts, their conceptualization and mediatization ("e;dick pics"e;), the interconnectedness of food and sex and its sensualization ("e;foodporn"e;) as well as processes of social cohesion around sex, sociability and conviviality ("e;bonding"e;). Based on an anthropological linguistic perspective, the authors analyze metasex practices from Nigeria, DR Congo, Uganda, the Mediterranean, and numerous other contexts. Africanist Agnes Bruhwiler's afterword on sex (talk) in Tanzania rounds off the various fresh insights this study offers.
