Explore core topics within gender and sexuality studies in the context of Scandinavia and Europe, well-known for gender equality, queer activism, and liberal policies.

• Travel with your classmates and DIS faculty on study tours to Sweden and Berlin, queer capital of Europe, to explore LGBTQ spaces, histories, and activism
• Panels on local burning issues such as dating, public displays of affection, gender roles, breastfeeding, trans life and paternity leave
• A Gender Bender Workshop with the local drag community immerses you in a real life experience with an academic lens to explore use of clothing, body language, and gestures to decode your own and others’ genders and sexualities

This program is right for you if you study gender studies, queer theory, women’s studies, anthropology, sociology, or human rights.


>> LGBTQ in Europe: Theories, Communities, and Spaces
This course explores the cultural, social, political, and activist aspects of queer life in modern Scandinavian societies. You look critically at the evolution and epistemology of queer theory and develop a vocabulary that deconstructs notions of normality in all its forms, but with a focus on gendered and sexual norms.
