This is a collection of primary sources for the historical study of sex, sexuality, and gender. With material dating back to the sixteenth century, researchers and scholars can examine how sexual norms have changed over time, health and hygiene, the development of sex education, the rise of sexology, changing gender roles, social movements and activism, erotica, and many other topical areas.
This growing archival program offers rich research opportunities across a wide span of human history. Disciplines such as social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ+ communities around the world are included, as well as rare and unique books on sex and sexuality from the sciences to the humanities to support research and education.
Access is restricted to ASU students, faculty, and staff; off-campus access is available.
