Canada has a sex history

Canada has an interesting sexual history, but one not told much. Until relatively recently. While historians in Canada have long focused on economics, war, Parliament, transportation and so on, the history of sex has been largely overlooked.

The Canadian Historical Association has a special committee examining the subject. It provides an organizational focus within the Canadian historical profession for all those who are researching, writing, teaching, and otherwise interested in the historical study of sexuality.

Check out their resources such as a bibliography of papers on sex in Canada, links to related organizations and an annual prize for the best writing on the subject.
