Kommentar

How do understandings of sexuality, desire, sex, and gender differ from one socio-cultural/geopolitical context to the other? What are the factors that contribute to the globalization and hegemony of some sexual identities, representations, and discourses rather than others? And why has it become almost imperative to approach “sexuality” in all of its aspects from a transnational perspective? In an increasingly globalized world, the constant flow of information, goods, people, and discourses across national and cultural borders has irreversibly influenced and shaped the ways we live, think about, and discuss sexual desire, practices, identities, and politics. This course will introduce students the local, national, and global entanglements as well as the social, cultural, economic, racial, and political systems and forces through which sexuality discourses are framed, constructed, and normalized globally. We will examine the complex ways discourses around “normative” and “non-normative” sexualities, identities, and desires are produced through the intersections of various global systems/factors such as neoliberal capitalism, migration, transnational mass media, human rights discourses, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) rights frameworks, and the ongoing war on terror, to name a few. Topics of discussion will include: sexuality and war, queer and trans* migration, sex tourism and travel, sex work, LGBT activism and rights, sexual imperialism, nationalism, racialized sexualities, and queer media representations. By looking at the complexities of transnational sexualities, this course encourages students to question US-centric and Western approaches to understanding sexualities and to critically evaluate the tenets and frameworks that have so far shaped their thinking around sexuality in a globalized world.

Bemerkung

Das Seminar findet zwar auf Englisch statt, der Dozent spricht aber gut Deutsch, so dass Diskussionen auch auf Deutsch geführt und Fragen auf Deutsch gestellt und beantwortet werden können!

Das Seminar wird mit Zoom und Moodle abgehalten/ the Seminar will be held via Zoom and Moodle
