WS 296S - Topic: Dress, Desire and Gesture: Sexualities of Renaissance Europe

New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge IV.

Course Description: This class will examine dramatic, poetic, and printed representation of desire and sexuality in early modern Europe between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. In particular, it will seek to define the particular, historical interplay between various early modern models of relation, sexual energy, and sexual identity. Modern sexuality can seem especially binary; this class works to expand our field of investigation and provide a more dynamic and nuanced study of the operation and formation of sexualized categories.
