Sexual Knowledge and Expertise in Europe’s East

Editors: Prof. Kate Fisher (University of Exeter)
and Dr. Kateřina Lišková (Masaryk University)



3–5 June 2019
Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic

East-Central Europe played a key role in shaping the development of sexual science from the 1880s onwards, yet relatively little attention has been paid to the history of sexual science in non-German speaking East-Central Europe and its significance in global networks of knowledge production. One goal of this conference is to bring the history of sexual science in East-Central Europe into the global history of sexology
