HIST 4127 Sex, Science, and Revolution in Asia, 1500-2000 (also ASIAN 4415/FGSS 4127) (HA-AS) (non-US)
Dr. Kristin Roebuck
History is full of sexual revolutions, and political revolutionaries often obsess over matters of sex. This course explores the links between sexual, political, and scientific revolutions in Asia from the early modern era to the present. Topics include the history of masculinity; the science of sex; body modification; fashion; sexual violence; homoeroticism; contraception, abortion, and infanticide; and the modernization of sex and gender under the major rival political movements in Asia: communism, feminism, imperialism, and nationalism.
