Course Description: Sex and sexuality are concepts that generate much debate across educational, health, and other institutional settings. These debates are mediated by historical perceptions of sex, sexuality, childhood, youth, and complex social and cultural factors that shape contemporary living. Constructions of childhood, youth, and sexuality shape approaches and pedagogies of sexual health in schools and other educational settings. This course critically considers sex, sexuality, and understandings of sexual health from a range of historical, sociological, psychological, educational, and public health perspectives. Students explore how these varied approaches construct and constrain young people's sexual identities and shape approaches to sexual health education. Throughout the course students examine the complex intersections between sex and sexuality and issues of gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, social class, religion, and geographic locatedness, and ask how these relationships limit or enable young people's access to knowledge and their citizenship rights.
