Global Gender and Sexuality
Schools of Public Engagement: Global, Urban, & Environmental
This course explores issues of gender and sexuality in transnational perspective, focusing on ways in which global flows of labor and discourse and global forms of measurement and administration determine or limit the ways in which gender roles and sexual hierarchies are produced, reinforced, and challenged. We will explore the tension between universal claims about gender and sexuality and local meanings across regions, cultures, and flows of migration. Specific topics covered will include the impacts of globalization, migration, and colonialism on gender and sexuality; how gender norms structure interventions into development and conflict; the rise of NGO-ization in global gender-based activism; sex workers' movements and constraints; how HIV/AIDS has shaped a global discourse on sexuality; non-binary gender and sexual identities in different contexts; gender in domestic or reproductive labor in a globalized economy; constructs of masculinity in militarism and nationalism; sexuality, migration and tourism; and the use of scientific discourses to enforce the gender binary.
