Course Description:

This course will provide an introductory inquiry into the sociological study of sexuality. Using a social constructionist lens, we will explore the shifting acceptance and sanction of sexual expression, behaviors, and identities. Sexuality will be further explored relative to gender, class, race/ethnicity, age, ability, politics, and the economy, making visible positions of privilege and oppression. A range of theories, concepts, and research from the social sciences will be considered as students develop a critical understanding of sexuality in the social world.
