Adam Matthew Digital Unveils a New Module of Its Sex & Sexuality Archive
Adam Matthew Digital released Module II of its Sex & Sexuality archive, titled Self-Expression, Community and Identity. Materials come from institutions such as the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the University of Southern California Libraries, The National Archives in the U.K., and Rare Books & Special Collections at the University of Sydney Library. Adam Matthew Digital notes, “While Module I focused on sexologists and the work of the Kinsey Institute, Module II features a wide variety of personal papers and organisational records through which to explore the history of human sexuality from the perspective of the individual and wider community from the grassroots level.” Major themes include community organization and activism, published and amateur erotica, and the AIDS pandemic.
“The official records of pressure groups and community organisations, diaries and correspondence, photographs, objects, erotic fiction, papers of noted sexologists and more, sourced from archives in the US, UK, and Australia can be used as a lens through which to view changing attitudes around the world from the nineteenth century to the modern day,” says Hannah Phillips, Adam Matthew Digital’s head of editorial production.
