Historicizing Early Modern Sexualities
ENGL 349
Spring 2011
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 350

This course will examine recent historical and theoretical approaches to the history of sexuality in early modern English literature. Our focus will be the historical construction of sexuality in relation to categories of gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, and social status in poetry and dramatic literature, and other cultural texts, such as 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 pornography and masturbation.
