Graduate School of Social Sciences

Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society

The study of human sexuality involves understanding its complexity and how it represents changing interactions over time involving the self, the body, culture, and power -- and as well, how this complexity is conceptualized and organized culturally, politically and epistemologically.

During this four-week advanced programme, students will gain knowledge of sexuality as it intersects with ethnicity, nationality, class, and religion, and will become more familiar with how sexuality is conceptualized and practiced within research, programmatic, and advocacy venues.
