SOCI-160-01 Sociology of Sexuality
Fall for 2016-2017
TR 11AM-12:15PM

In this course, we will examine sexual attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors from a sociological perspective. We will also consider how the biology of sex gets sociologically constructed, and the myriad ways sexual desire and sexual activity are structured by social relations. Cross-cultural and historical accounts of sexual practices and sexual identities will be considered, as well as the contemporary theories and methods in sexuality studies. The course also focuses on the ways in which sexuality as social institution and identity intersects with other major hierarchies of privilege and inequality, specifically race, ethnicity, social class, and gender. Organized as an Integrated Writing course, students will finish the course with a knowledge- and skills-based research project.
Credits: 3
Prerequisites: None
