Transcript Title: THINKING SEX 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course approaches gender and sexuality as historically and culturally contingent rather than as natural expressions of a private self. It provides the historical and theoretical frameworks for understanding the rise of specific genders and sexualities in relation to available medical, psychoanalytic, philosophical, political, and popular discourses. Drawing from recent formations in both feminism and queer studies, this subject engages with a diverse range of cultural texts from the proceedings of court cases to personal advertisements, from celebrity gossip columns to popular film. On completion of this subject, students explicate the complex imbrications of gender and sexuality and analyze the representation of gendered and sexual identities and desires in selected cultural texts, which may include television, film, internet, and print media.
