Since 2003 the subject of "gay marriage" has played an important role in national elections for both Democratic and Republican political candidates. Most significantly, debates over the issue of same sex union has brought considerable media attention to two of the most important social movements concerned with sexuality in the last fifty years: Gay Liberation and the Religious Right. This course will examine the parallel development of both political cultures since the Second World War, and will help place contemporary culture wars over religion and gay rights in historical perspective. Topics covered include the relationship of sexuality to capitalism, the growth of gay urban neighborhoods in some cities, the rise of large evangelical churches in many suburbs, the Cold War and the AIDS crisis. This course will introduce freshman to the fundamentals of writing history papers, and each student will conclude the course by designing a 10-12 page research project. A midterm and several discussion assignments will also be required.
