Anthropology and sexual morality : a theoretical investigation by Carles Salazar( )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of sexual morality in Ireland has been traditionally associated with repression. In the last two decades, however, repression seems to have given way to its exact opposite. But where did this "repression" originate and how can we account for this sudden and sweeping transformation in sexual mores? Based on solid ethnographic and historical analysis of sexual morality in rural Ireland, augmented by comparative data from Papua New Guinea, and informed by Freud's emblematic concept of repression, the author draws new conclusions that not only apply to the specific case of his Irish material but shed new light on the specific nature of an anthropological approach to the study of human societies."--Jacket
European kinship in the age of biotechnology by Jeanette Edwards( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in the study of kinship, a key area of anthropological enquiry, has recently reemerged. Dubbed 'the new kinship', this interest was stimulated by the 'new genetics' and revived interest in kinship and family patterns. This volume investigates the impact of biotechnology on contemporary understandings of kinship, of family and 'belonging' in a variety of European settings and reveals similarities and differences in how kinship is conceived. What constitutes kinship for different publics? How significant are biogenetic links? What does family resemblance tell us? Why is genetically modified food an issue? Are 'genes' and 'blood' interchangeable? It has been argued that the recent prominence of genetic science and genetic technologies has resulted in a 'geneticization' of social life; the ethnographic examples presented here do show shifts occurring in notions of 'nature' and of what is 'natural'. But, they also illustrate the complexity of contemporary kinship thinking in Europe and the continued interconnectedness of biological and sociological understandings of relatedness and the relationship between nature and nurture

Défis contemporains de la parenté by Joan Bestard( )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pourquoi la notion de parenté que l'on croyait aussi intangible qu'intemporelle est-elle aujourd'hui soumise aux plus profonds bouleversements? Quels changements ont affecté la parenté ces dernières décennies? Les auteurs, issus d'horizons géographiques et disciplinaires variés, confrontent positions et analyses autour de trois thématiques : les cadres et enjeux juridiques des nouvelles parentés, la parenté à l'âge des biotechnologies et des adoptions internationales, les changements de perception du corps et de la personne. Ce livre nous entraîne au cœur des controverses soulevées par les nouvelles techniques de procréation (familles mono- et homo-parentales, fécondation in vitro, dons de gamètes, etc.). Il témoigne de l'évolution profonde de la parenté, tant au niveau des savoirs et des techniques que des représentations et des valeurs communes. La filiation ne va plus de soi ... La diversité et la profondeur de l'étude, marquée par une approche anthropologique, rendent cet ouvrage incontournable pour la compréhension des nouveaux défis de la parenté, en pleine (r- )évolution
