CHST 655 - God, Sex, and the Making of American Families

This course examines how religious ideas and practices - particularly forms of Christianity - have influenced both private and public understandings of sex and family in the United States. Themes include the regulation of sex practices within and outside of marriage; the conflation of monogamous marriage with virtue and republican ideology; the meanings of domesticity; domesticity’s shadows, including slavery and polygamy; and same-sex love and the emergence of modern sexual identities and practices. Prerequisite: CHST 503  or equivalent.
