The Intellectural History of Sex and Gender: Text and Traditions

INTERDISCIPLINARY PROJECT IN THE HUMANITIES 310

When did sexuality begin? Is it safe to assume that gender constructions are universal and timeless? In this course, we will engage with a broad range of readings that serve as primary texts in the 'history of sexuality and gender.' Our aims are threefold: to analyze the literary evidence we have for sexuality and gender identity in Western culture, to survey modern scholarly approaches to those same texts and to consider the ways in which these modern theoretical frameworks have become the most recent set of 'primary' texts on sexuality and gender.
