Introduction to Sexuality Studiesonline course
Sexuality and gender define what it is to be human: they are at the core of our existence. But how does society define and reinforce these concepts? In this summer school, we will study how these concepts impact our relationships within society, and the different theoretical perspectives that have been developed to study their role in social and familial relationships. Students will be equipped with analytical tools to study these themes critically and reflexively, and in interaction with other social distinctions, such as religion, social class and nationality, within the setting of an online international classroom.
Academic Director: Dr Marie-Louise Janssen & Laurens Buijs. Dr Marie-Louise Janssen is the Track Coordinator of Gender, Sexuality and Society (MSc Sociology) at the Unviersity of Amsterdam.
