Example text

The scientific view of sexuality makes every other view, by definition, a myth, a misconception, or a taboo. If the health worker is to engineer the correct outcome of such mock tribunals, then what space is there within which to consider the possibility that the very notion of sex, which is the object of such trials, might be a foreign concept? Supposing that people are able to clearly separate overlapping and competing discourses about sex, then what aspects of the context—what domestic, gender, political, and economic relations—make one case about sexuality more convincing than another?

22 Within the development policy and planning literature the documentation of e√orts to deliver important medical services, infrastructural opportunities, and health resources is often accompanied by an accounting of project failures and successes. Usually, the blame for failed development e√orts is placed on target populations while credit for successes is attributed to the skillful work of program planners (Harding 1993). In contrast, critical ethnographic studies of development focus on the modes of engagement within development programs themselves, treating the problems of contestation over terms, forms, and practices as part of a larger inquiry into the unintended consequences of participation in ‘‘development’’ itself (Ferguson 1991; Gupta 1998; Li 1999; Moore 1999; Pigg 1992, 1996, 1997; Sivaramakrishnan 2000; Woost 1993).

I was awash in medico-moral discourses on sex, bu√eted on one side by the sex education classes taught by the gym teacher and on the other by my reading of Our Bodies, Ourselves, the bible of the women’s health movement (with furtive peeks at The Joy of Sex sandwiched in-between). That April in 1997, watching the Nepali students struggle with their worksheets, it struck me that outside of this training session there were few (if any) other ways that they would encounter this particular configuration of information about the body.
