Gender and Sexuality in Scandinavia
What characterizes interpretations of gender, body, and sexuality in the liberal Scandinavian context? The course explores current Scandinavian debates on gender equality, the role of men and masculinity, family structure, homosexuality, and prostitution. How do concepts of gender, body, and sexuality intersect with concepts of normality and what are the real consequences of these for both genders?
- Sex og Samfund
- Visit the Danish Family Planning Organization to learn how sexuality is taught in Denmark, which issues are in focus, and which methods are used.
- Gay in Decay? City Exploration
- We will explore gay bars and the night-life of Copenhagen, in attempts to find out: What is the current direction of the gay & lesbian movement, and are ‘they’ by definition allies in the same fight – merely because of a common sexual identity?
