This course offers students a critical overview of the contested terms “sex”, “gender” and “sexuality” through the framework of the City. This course will explore some of the ways in which cities and the inhabitants have been historically sexed, gendered, and sexualized. Traversing “the private” and “the public,” the temporal and spatial, and the individual and the social, this course will explore the centrality of these themes in London and British history. Meets with SOC/WGS 400.1.
Limited enrollment; Sociology majors may take more than one Sociology (SOC) course, all others limited to one SOC course (including SOC cross-listing) during the semester.
Semesters: Fall, Spring
