Reviews

"This volume greatly expands the range of non-normative--although not necessarily rare--behaviors that shaped the sexual landscape of Spanish and Portuguese America. Bookended by contributions from Lavrin and Pete Sigal, this is a self-aware contribution to the historiography of sexuality. ... With its collection of sharp essays based on truly exceptional archival sources, this collection will be a must-read for scholars interested in the history of sexuality in the Iberian American colonies."-- (03/01/2017)
"The volume is an absolute success. . . . Tortoricci has brought together an excellent array of scholars and scholarship, making Sexuality and the Unnatural a welcome addition to the literature about colonial Latin America."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History
