WaGS 107: History of Sexuality

Santiago, MF 1:00-2:340 pm
Does sexuality have a history? Can it be that something that is so intimate and private actually is a social act that has changed over time?  These questions guide this examination of the global history of sexuality. We will explore human sexual behaviors as far back in time as possible and into the present, paying close attention to shifting attitudes over the centuries and the reasons why such transformations took place across the world. This class will discuss extremely sensitive matters that may challenge some views about sexual practices.
