DCC Gender and Sexuality Studies
‘Gender and Sexuality: Is Denmark the Brothel of the North?’ is a course in English for international students. The course introduces the students to the history of concepts of gender and sexuality, and covers topics such as heterosexuality, homosexuality, sex education, women’s emancipation, masculinity, prostitution, pornography, sexual nationalism, and transgenderism. We will use a diverse range of teaching methods including group work, movie screenings, and lectures. We will focus on Denmark, but also study how Denmark relates and compares to the rest of the world. The course does not require previous knowledge of theories of gender and sexuality and aims to give the students the opportunity to share knowledge oftheir respective home countries in an academic setting.
NB. We will deal with pornography in a scholarly manner, and no one will be shown offensive pornographic images. Nude pictures do occasionally occur in the teaching material.
