Course Description

WGSS 110
Sex, Body, and Gender in Early European Societies

This course explores the intersections of body, sexuality, and gender in Western culture from late antiquity through early modern Europe. Beginning with the common heritage of late antiquity, the course moves into the diversity of constructions of femininity, masculinity, and the range of sexualities in pre-modern Europe. As concepts of body, sex, and gender are heavily influenced by religious belief systems, readings for each section will be drawn from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim (Iberian Peninsular) sources including the use of gender and sexuality in formulations of the religious “other.
