Research output: ScientificDoctoral Thesis


This study focuses on the rules for sexual behaviour in conduct books, published in the Netherlands between 1780 and 1890. The analysis is based on two types of conduct books: the marriage manual and the conduct book for young adults. At the end of the eighteenth century, both types of books are already well established. At this point in time, however, a variation within the last type is developing: the conduct book for young women. Central to my analysis is the question how the rules for sexual conduct are to be interpreted. Zie: Summary
