Primary Instructor:

This interdisciplinary course focuses on sexuality and science from two perspectives. We will discuss current biological and neuroscientific research about sexuality, as well as feminist scholarship on these topics and critical responses to this research. Topics will cover the intersections between biology (e.g., hormones, genetics, neural activity, psychophysiology, evolution, etc.), sexuality (e.g., desire, dysfunction, arousal, bisexuality, orgasm, same-sex sexuality, pleasure, etc.), and feminist/critical scholarship about this research (e.g., feminist science studies, queer theory, feminist psychology, medicalization, etc.). A class homepage will become available on CTools at the semester’s start.

Course Requirements:

Students will be evaluated on exams, group work, and research papers. This class will use a mixture of lecture and discussion.

Intended Audience:

Students are expected to have a background knowledge in women’s studies, sexuality, or biopsychology/neuroscience, but do not need proficiency in more than one of these fields.
