Trial access to online resources for LGBT+ studies

The University Library has arranged trial access to online resources for LGBT+ studies: the Archives of Sexuality and Gender (Gale Cengage) and LTBT Life with Full Text (Ebsco).

Archives of Sexuality and Gender can be accessed from this link until 5 June 2017

Archives of Sexuality and Gender is an ongoing, growing series of archives comprising primary sources in LGBTQ history and activism, cultural studies, psychology, sociology, health, political science, policy studies, human rights, gender studies, and more.  To date only Part I has been released: “LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940, Part I”. This collection presents important aspects of LGBTQ life in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond and illuminates the experiences not just of the LGBTQ community as a whole, but of individuals of different races, ethnicities, ages, religions, political orientations, and geographical locations that constitute this community. Historical records of political and social organizations founded by LGBTQ individuals are featured, as well as publications by and for lesbians and gays, and extensive coverage of governmental responses to the AIDS crisis.  There is an overview of the collection described here.

 

LGBT Life with Full Text can be accessed from this link until 2 June 2017.

LGBT Life with Full Text provides an index to the world’s literature on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.  The index gives broad coverage of the world’s LGBTQ literature, for both academic & lifestyle publications and includes the full run of 190 of the most important & historically significant journals, magazines, and regional newspapers, both mainstream and grey, and more than 330 books & reference works. Topics include sociology, culture, civil liberties, individual lives, family, community, employment, history, politics, psychology, and religion.  Content lists in PDF, Excel and HTML format can be downloaded from the Ebsco site here.

 

The University Library welcomes your thoughts and feedback on these resources.  Please write to ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk.  It is helpful particularly to us to understand how the resources may be useful to you in your work (please identify which resource(s) in any specific comments).  Thank you.

Reproduction of the original painting of The Earth by Nicolas Lancret in the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

The inscription to the engraving of The Earth does not change the weight of the signification.  (The inscription ends with these suggestive lines: “As the most beautiful Fruit takes form in her Breast, / Tearing it is necessary to render her fertile”.) Sexual desire is represented in the image in a highly decorous, coded manner, without any note of moral censure in the painting itself or in the pictorial or verbal parts of the engraving.
