Gender and Sexuality Studies
‘Denmark: Brothel of the North?: Gender and Sexuality Studies’ is a course in English for Danish and international students. The course introduces the students to the history of concepts of gender and sexuality, and covers topics such as heterosexuality, homosexuality, sex education, HIV/AIDS, women’s emancipation, masculinity, prostitution, pornography, sexual nationalism, and transgenderism. We will use a diverse range of teaching methods including group work, excursions, movie screenings, and lectures. We will focus on Denmark, but also study how Denmark relates and compares to the rest of the world. The course does not require previous knowledge of theories of gender and sexuality, and aims to give the students the opportunity to share knowledge of their respective home countries in an academic setting.
NB. We will deal with pornography in a scholarly manner, and no one will be shown images they do not want to see. A warning will always be given before dealing with potentially offensive images.
