FIF 202 Representations of Sexuality in Contemporary Literature

Course Description

Examine the representations of sexuality found within contemporary literature. Consider a variety of dichotomies which sexuality presents, such as masculine and feminine, heterosexual and homosexual, purity and corruption, and deviant and normal. Explore sexuality as a conceptualization defined by history and politics with social, psychological and cultural implications. Discuss and question the politics involved in regulating and normalizing sexuality through laws, the media, and institutions such as religion.  Finally, we will consider the aesthetic implications of sexuality as portrayed in the literature.

Note: This course contains mature and sexually explicit materials which are integral to the course design.
