This course examines the ideologies and practices associated with sexuality from a broad perspective that incorporates diverse case studies from the ethnographic record. Working from the argument that much of human sexual behavior is culturally constructed rather than biologically determined, the course invites students to expand their notion of the "normal" and to consider the human condition from a cross-cultural perspective. Topics discussed include cross-cultural varieties of transgendered experience, same-sex sexualities, and heteronormative identities.

SPRING 2021: STUDENTS FROM ALL MAJORS ARE WELCOME and the course is designed to accommodate everybody! Have you always wondered how people in other times and places think about sex and gender? This course is a special opportunity to get out of our own cultural bubble and think about sexuality more broadly.  We will learn, for example, that nonbinary gender categories are neither unique to industrialized cultures nor new.  We'll learn about polygamy (multiple marriage partners); how different cultures view the issue of premarital sex; and how "love matches" compare to arranged marriages.  Later in the semester, we'll explore hotbutton isses related to campus sexual cultures; discuss a memoir written by a transgender professor living in Maine; and explore changing ideas about marriage by interviewing older family members or friends.  This course is an excellent opportunity for free-wheeling discussion!  In spring 2021, the class will meet in-person each Wednesday afternoon.  Cross listed with Women's and Gender Studies.
