Book Description: "This work makes the counter-intuitive argument that contemporary "sex panics" in a variety of political and social arenas are symptoms of queerphobia, even when the panic in question presents itself as being about something else (e.g., sex trafficking, incest, child abuse), and, moreover, that liberal values and ideologies collude in creating and perpetuating these queerphobic panics. In the case studies that populate the book's six body chapters (child molester panics, sex trafficking panics, incest panics, transgender panics, queer kids, pedagogy panics), Ian Barnard is concerned not so much with looking at the overt homophobia and transphobia that are the more obvious objects of anti-homophobic and anti-transphobic analysis as in excavating their significant traces in a neo-liberal culture that has supposedly demonstrated its civility by its embrace of diversity, renunciation of its homophobic past, and attentiveness to the transgender revolution that is sweeping popular, media, and political culture in the US and elsewhere"--

Book Description: Medieval Considerations of Incest, Marriage, and Penance focuses on the incest motif as used in numerous medieval narratives. Explaining the weakness of great rulers, such as Charlemagne, or the fall of legendary heroes, such as Arthur, incest stories also reflect on changes to the sacramental regulations and practices related to marriage and penance. Such changes demonstrate the Church's increasing authority over the daily lives and relationships of the laity. Treated here are a wide variety of medieval texts, using as a central reference point Philippe de RĂ©mi's thirteenth-century La Manekine, which presents one lay author's reflections on the role of consent in marriage, the nature of contrition and forgiveness, and even the meaning of relics. Studying a variety of genres including medieval romance, epic, miracles, and drama along with modern memoirs, films, and novels, Linda Rouillard emphasizes connections between medieval and modern social concerns. Rouillard concludes with a consideration of the legacy of the incest motif for the twenty-first century, including survivor narratives, and new incest anxieties associated with assisted reproductive technology.
