Aims and Objectives

Principal Module Aims

This course aims to introduce students to critical thinking about history of sexuality in its global context. Another goal is to denaturalize our notion of "normal," and learn how to queer the past. Finally, this course shows the students some of the key readings in the field, both older and newer, and presents fields of ongoing current research.
