INST 2814 - Bodies and Borders: WGSS in London and Amsterdam

Hours: 3
The body is not an object. It is not distinct from mind, self, or spirit. It is not simply matter or a simple matter. We live the body. The body situates us in vital facets of the human condition: gender, sexuality, race, ability, class, nation, and more. This class will consider the body - the lived body - as it moves across time, place, space, and borders. More specifically, we will travel to London and Amsterdam. Along the way, we will explore the body as a locus of transnational sex work and antiviolence activism. We will study the depiction of gendered and sexualized bodies in protest art, including photography and street art. We will interrogate regulation and surveillance of the body at national borders and other contexts. And we will examine the deployment of gender and sexuality in national museum archives.
