GCST2607 - Bodies, Sexualities, Identities

Summer Late, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Carina Mary Lindsay Garland

Description

In this unit of study we will examine the ways in which feminist and other cultural theories have used bodies and sexualities in order to theorise difference and identity. The body and sexuality have been shown to be a major site for the operation of power in our society. We will look at how bodies and sexualities have given rise to critical understandings of identity. The unit of study will be devoted to working through some of the major theories of sexuality and embodiment, and the analysis of cultural practices.
