This course examines gender and sexuality in the context of society and the law. It analyses the concepts and histories of patriarchy, criminalization, racism, and sociological approaches to gender and sexuality. Students will explore intersectional identities of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, (dis)ability, and class, as well as their social and legal evolution. Students will be exposed to indigenous and/or multicultural knowledges and perspectives on gender and sexuality, with particular attention to their intersections with the law.
