GWS 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Sex and Nation

4 credits (Spring)
This course explores histories and present realities of sex in national, international, and transnational contexts. The central question is: How are gender and sexual identities related to citizenship and national belonging? The course will examine how conceptions of family, gender, sexuality, race, and reproduction are central to definitions of citizenship and nationhood, and how hierarchies of nations are represented and reproduced within the international community. It will also examine how hierarchical categories of belonging within and among nations are negotiated and contested.

Prerequisite: GWS 249 .
