Queer Space: Desire and Sex in Public (FRE2106.01)

Stephen Shapiro

In this course, we will examine the blurry lines separating public and private space and how they shape and influence queer sexual practices and identities. We will focus on queer sexual cultures that arose in Europe (Paris) and America from the 18th through 20th centuries as innovative models of urban sociability magnified desire and fostered experiments and new forms of sexuality.  Taught in English.
