Extrait de la couverture : "This volume sets out to investigate critically existing lines of tought about sexuality in Africa, while also creating space for alternative approches. Issues of colonial and contemporary discourses on 'African sexuality' and on 'female genital mutilation' are discussed, as are issues of female agency and of feminist engagement with HIV/AIDS. The volume contributes to current efforts to re-think sexualities in the light of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory."
