A History of Sexuality


This course examines theories and historiography of pre-modern sexualities. By focusing on the history of ancient and medieval ideologies and hierarchies of sexual behavior, this class seeks to understand the cultural constructs of sexuality and gender in various eras and civilizations and questions the idea of a trans-historical heteronormativity. Prerequisite: 24 credits in ISP, including ITW 101 and QL. (GRC IB)
