Today’s sexuality in Spain cannot be understood without taking into account what it used to be just 40 years ago, when many Spaniards were educated under the principles of National Catholicism. Yet in 2005, Spain became the third country in the world to legally recognize same-sex marriage. This course explores important transformations in Spaniards’ concepts of sexuality and gender through readings, film screenings, and observing certain urban areas in Madrid. Course meets with WGS/SOC 306.
