Spring 2022 Capstone: HS478, Global Histories of Sexuality

Can sex have a history? If so, what kind? This course takes a comparative and transnational perspective to the history of sexuality in pursuit of this question. It examines how societies from around the world and across time have regulated, constructed, and policed sexual behaviors and identities. The course asks how race, gender, class, and ability have inflected and shaped people's diverse sexualities and sexual experiences. In doing so, it showcases the ways that the history of sexuality reshapes our understanding of social, political, and cultural history more broadly. Topics vary by semester, but may include male homosexuality, lesbianism, (trans) gender identity and transsexuality, heterosexuality, sexual knowledge, regulation and policing, reproduction, sexual violence and crime, sex work and prostitution, queer and feminist politics, and health and medicine.
