Example text

This goes 30 English Literary Sexology some way towards explaining why Ulrichs, like most of his contemporaries and immediate successors, largely treated the existence of female same-sex desire mutatis mutandis, as an afterthought in their investigations of male sexuality. The conception and transferral of Ulrichs’ ideas, then, not only reveals the significance of translation for understanding the common Humanist frame of reference of the different national European sexological traditions but it indicates a longer tradition of negating female same-sex discourses.

Chapter 1 traces the emergence of the scientia sexualis in Germany from the first affirmative same-sex pamphlets of Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, to the publication of Richard von Krafft-Ebing’s influential textbook Psychopathia Sexualis, and, finally, the institutionalisation of the discipline by Magnus Hirschfeld. The chapter contextualises the discourses of inversion in relation to broader political developments, paying particular attention to the dissemination of their ideas in scientific as well as lay circles.

Same-sex oriented women in turn were described as possessing a masculine soul but female sexuality was a mere afterthought for Ulrichs and marginal to his overall theorisation. 3 Hekma emphasises what he considers to be Ulrichs’ focus on the cerebral qualities of sexuality, arguing that Ulrichs’ own knowledge of contemporary same-sex subcultures led him to complicate dominant binary sex-gender categorisations, trying to produce a more accurate typology of men who had sex with men. But Ulrichs’ ideas offer specific insights into the formation of a sexual theory that go beyond an understanding of the relatedness of gender and sexuality in the classifications of the modern ‘homosexual’.
