History and Sexuality/Sexuality and History

(p.1) Introduction
Disturbing Practices

Laura Doan

University of Chicago Press

This introductory chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to explore the friendships, communities, and work of a few British women who served in various capacities during World War I. In turning to these historical examples, the book attempts to disturb current practices in historicizing sexuality, in particular practices that position the homosexual or queer subject near the center of investigative curiosity. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   British women, World War I, sexuality, homosexual, queer
