Sexuality - 23006

What is sexuality? What is its biological basis? How does society constrain and construct it? How is sexuality represented and, again, constructed in such discourses as literature, film and religion? How does sexuality intersect with race? How do sexuality and race circulate and clash in global contexts? These are some of the questions that students taking courses in this connection will address.

Students in ANTH 350  and ENG 272  may deepen their understanding of transgender, while those in ITAS 235  will focus on gender violence. SOC 310  provides perspectives on power and bodily pain; SOC 310  and ENG 272 , on post colonialism and representations of gender, sexualities and cultures. Students completing SOC 310  and FR 331  will learn about Western (and imperialist) discourses on sexuality, nation and power. Other combinations will provide other perspectives and focuses on the general topic of sexuality.
