Course Description

This course offers critical sociological examinations of the sex lives of women and men of Mexican origin (both U.S.-born populations and foreign born) and analyzes their experiences of sexuality, intimacy, relationships, and sexual health in Mexican American communities and Mexican territory, paying special attention to these processes within contexts of migration. The course focuses on Mexican and Mexican American populations, however, we will study their parallel experiences of sexuality with women and men from other U.S. Latino and Latin American cultures. The course will analyze why and how women and men experience sexuality not in isolation, but rather within specific gendered contexts including family, culture, religion, and society in general.
