Northeast / Lecture: Natural History of Sexuality in Early America

This lecture is presented by Greta LaFleur, assistant professor of American studies at Yale University and director of the graduate studies program in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.

The lecture will focus on her recent book, “Natural History of Sexuality in Early America,” which brings together the history of sexuality and early environmental studies to explore how sexual behaviors were understood in the 18h-century Atlantic world..

If sexology—the science of sex—came into being sometime in the 19th century, then how did statesmen, scientists, and everyday people make meaning out of sex before that point?

In “The Natural History of Sexuality in Early America,” Greta LaFleur demonstrates that 18th-century natural history—the study of organic life in its environment—actually provided the intellectual foundations for the later development of the scientific study of sex.
