DCC Gender and Sexuality Studies

Course content

Gender and Sexuality studies is a course in English for international students.

In this course, we will explore gender and sexuality in Scandinavia and internationally through historical investigations of contemporary questions. Issues around homosexuality, pornography, children’s sexuality, prostitution, STDs, masculinity, and women’s liberation have flourished throughout the last century. We will discuss these and others, aiming to understand the historical and cultural roots of contemporary debates.

We will aim to understand scholarly debates around questions such as essentialism versus constructionism, queer theory, political uses of scholarly research, and censorship.

 

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.
