Sociology of Sexualities


This course examines the social construction of sexuality, sexual identities, and the influence of society on sexual behaviors, including societal attempts at regulating sexuality and the ways gender influences sexual attitudes and behaviors. Particular attention is given to the emergence of queer identities, politics, and activism. Finally, the course critically interrogates heterosexism, homophobia, compulsory heterosexuality, and globalization and sexual commodification.
