The eleven essays and the introduction included in this collection offer an interdisciplinary reflection on the multifarious intersections of sexuality and gender-based norms in Southern Europe. They offer varied insights on the different negotiations of gender and sexuality and their connections to different forms of violence in the Iberian Peninsula. Empirically rich and theoretically challenging, the different chapters tackle topics such as the configuration of relationships, digital intimacies, sexual violence and harassment and sex education. The first part explores the current configurations of sexuality, gender and violence attending to traditional meanings and also to new debates on these issues. The second part explores current masculinities in relation to different forms of violence. This collection is essential reading for anyone who is interested in the relations between sex, gender and violence in the contemporary moment.

“A fascinating collection, offering an exciting and thought-provoking journey through many – new and familiar – sites of negotiation of gender and sexuality in the Iberian Peninsula. Empirically rich, theoretically challenging, and critically engaged, this book is a powerful reminder of how personal and political, how pleasurable and violent, how material and elusive, gender and sexuality can be.” -Maria do Mar Pereira, Centre for the Study of Women and Gender, University of Warwick, United Kingdom

“Begonya Enguix Grau and Cristina Pereira Vieira’s edited collection, Sexualities, Gender and Violence: A View from the Iberian Peninsula, provides an overdue and much needed survey of contemporary gender research across Spain and Portugal. This excellent collection, tackling topics such as the configuration of relationships, digital intimacies, sexual violence and harassment and sex education charts issues of concern that speak to a set of interests that animate debate across gender research at an international level. The collection is essential reading for anyone who is interested in the relations between sex, gender and violence in the contemporary moment.” -John Mercer, Professor of Gender and Sexuality, Birmingham City University, United Kingdom
