Hist 5900/8900 The History of Sexuality in Europe

Hist 5900/8900: The History of Sexuality in Europe will concern much more than sexuality and Modern Europe. This course will address key issues in historiography especially those inspired by Michel Foucault. It will also take on interdisciplinary methods and students in non-history departments are most welcome. The main subjects of the course will include 20th century Germany; imperialism in Latin America and India; and postmodern society. Participants will be able to choose between writing a historiography paper or a research paper (either can be on a non-European topic). For more information, please contact Anna Clark at clark106@umn.edu.
