Seeking help with one of your holdings - 1993 graduate of Trinity


I am a 1993 graduate from Trinity, now living in Round Rock, Texas (north of Austin), and now pursuing a PhD in Human Sexuality from the California Institute of Integral Studies.

I’m trying to get access to pages 381-394 of this book:

Herdt, Gilbert H., 1949-

Intimate communications : erotics and the study of culture / Gilbert Herdt and Robert J. Stoller. - New York : Columbia University Press, c1990. - xvi, 467 p., [9] p. of plates : ill. (some col.), 1 map ; 24 cm.

Institute Author.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 439-458) and index.

pt. 1. Introductions. Clinical ethnography ; Sambia sexual culture -- pt. 2. Interviews. Interviewing Sambia ; Moondi's erotism ; Tali and Weiyu on ritual and erotics ; Penjukwi: portrait of a woman ; Salulambei: a hermaphrodite's secret ; Imano: considerate masculinity ; Kalutwo: portrait of a misfit ; The interpreter's discomfort -- pt. 3. Conclusions. Summing up: clinical ethnography of Sambia erotics and gender.

ISBN: 0231069006 (alk. paper) 9780231069007 (alk. paper) 0231069014 (pbk.)

As an alumnus, am I able to get access to the library? If so, what is the cost?

Are there any options for digital scanning? I’m willing to pay for any processing.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

You would need to use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to obtain a copy of the needed pages from the book and currently our ILL service is limited to current students, faculty and staff. However, you can place the ILL request with another library such as your public library. You might also check with the university where you are doing your graduate degree to see if they provide any off campus ILL services for their students.

It is possible to have borrowing privileges after obtaining an alum card from the Tiger Card office and paying a one time fee of $15. I'm attaching a link below that will give you more information about the borrowing privileges available.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
