CSIS 200: Critical Engagements in Sexuality Studies

The study of sexuality is also always the study of systems of power, such as: racism, classism, ableism, and settler colonialism. In this course, we will consider the myriad systemic factors that influence and shape our understandings of sexuality in North America. We will then delve into the contexts, complexities, and possibilities of several notable issues in this field, such as: sex work, policing and pride, #MeToo, and sex education. We will trace the societal factors and systems of power that are involved in these topics through our analysis over the term. We will work together to better understand how sexuality intersects with these topics while also grappling with our relationships and responses to these issues.
