Historicizing Early Modern Sexualities
ENGL 250
Fall 2008
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 275

This course will examine recent historical and theoretical approaches to the history of sexuality in the early modern period. Our focus will be the historical construction of sexuality in relation to categories of gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, and social status in a variety of cultural forms, including literary texts, medical treatises, travel narratives, and visual media. Some of the topics we will cover include sexed/gendered/racialized constructions of the body, forms of sexuality prior to the homo/hetero divide, and the history of prostitution and pornography.
