ENGL 104 - Sexuality and Literature

4 credits
This course examines how the poems we write, the stories we tell, the dramas we play out reflect, change, and are themselves shaped by love, sex, erotic desire, and gender. It also asks just what sexuality is, why it has troubled so many people for so long, and why it has been considered so central to modern human identity. Depending on the instructor this course may focus exclusively on literature, or also explore sexuality in other arts (such as painting, film, television). It will likely also draw upon theoretical texts by such figures as Freud, Foucault, Eve Sedgwick, and Judith Butler.
