HS 416 - Sex and the City

(3.00 cr.)

Introduces students to key themes in both urban history and the history of sexuality by exploring the ways in which the development of modern urban centers in Western Europe and North America shaped and were shaped by the emergence of modern sexuality in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Topics covered include industrialization and urbanization, public hygiene and urban design, sex work, consumer culture, and the development of gay, lesbian, and transgender subcultures.
