Intimate Histories: Topics in the History of Sex, Gender, and the Body|
Fall 2011 not offered
AMST 345, FGSS 349|
|Course Cluster: Disability Studies|
This upper-level seminar addresses the history of the body, as well as the regimes of power and normality that produce ideas of health, sexuality, and gender in time and space. It is intended to support students who wish to do interdisciplinary or historical research and writing in queer, trans, feminist, disability, and/or sexuality studies. Themes we will address include the role of formal and popular science in producing new identities, the political uses of gender and sexuality, methods of assigning gender and ability, the transformative power of pain, and the role of stigma in articulating similar bodies differently.
