SOC 340G • Sociology of Sexualities
2:00 PM-3:30 PM
This undergraduate course examines the ways in which U.S. society has promoted specific beliefs and practices with regard to sexual desire, behavior, and identity. This course explores these three dimensions of sexuality from different sociological perspectives that are sensitive to diversity including but not limited to gender, race/ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation. The course will analyze why and how different social groups in the U.S. experience sexuality not in isolation, but rather within specific contexts including family, culture, religion, media, sports, law, and society, in general.
