Gender, Sexuality and the Body
The course examines the relationship between genders and sexualities, and examines the histories of sexualities, their medicalisations and political struggles, as well as more contemporary debates around queer theories; students consider what transsexuality, transgenderism and intersexuality, as well as anthropological studies of '3rd genders', can say about the norms of sexuality people are encouraged to accept.
