Sexual snapshots: Departmental committees and their value to the historian of sexuality

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Within the historiography of Scottish sexuality, the proceedings of official enquiries on moral and sex-related issues have begun to be recognised and exploited as rich historical sources which provide important snapshots of the country’s sexual past, in terms of both attitudes and behaviours. Using the archives of the 1958 Feversham Committee – a Departmental Committee on Human Artificial Insemination – as a case study, this article will consider the historical insights which can be gleaned from such primary source material, as well as offering some closing reflections on their potential pitfalls.
