HISTORY 306

Making Sex: Modern Histories of Sex


Description

The terms heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, sadist, masochist – indeed sexuality itself – all date from the nineteenth century, the era of sexology. Using examples from the USA and Europe, this course explores the formation of modern sexualities in the period from the nineteenth century onwards, with particular focus on the construction of homosexual and heterosexual identities and the modern privileging of sex.
