Connections 23006. Sexuality
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. PSY 261 and SOC 310 provide 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.
