Course Description: This course offers a study of nineteenth and twentieth century prostitution from a global history perspective. The course focuses on how prostitution was embedded in and influenced by processes and structures of transnational contact, exchange, and mobility. The course discusses case studies on prostitution and its regulation in settings of Empire and military occupation; examines how prostitution was connected to transnational movements such as trafficking, migration, and tourism; and explores how abolitionist movements embarked on transnational networks, institutions, and strategies. The case studies serve as a basis to discuss to what extent research on prostitution can benefit from a global history perspective and to reflect how in its wake questions of gender, class and race hierarchies, sexual othering, and transnational institutional and economical networks become prominent features.
