Course Aims

This course explores the meanings of sex and sexuality in cultural and historical contexts. We will look at how sexuality is embedded in social and political institutions and encourage students to understand the cultural and socio-political implication of sex and sexuality. Various learning activities will be used, such as lectures, group discussion, video show, sharing with guest speakers and visiting local communities. The course gives students opportunities to critically discover and examine issues related to sex and sexuality in terms of race, gender, class, age, and sexual orientation in both local and international contexts..
