HIST 172 PZ -Empire and Sexuality


Institution: Pitzer

Description: The construction of gender and sexuality was central to British and French imperialism. This course examines the formation of genders in colonial Asia and Africa from the 18th through the early twentieth centuries. We will look at men and women, colonizers and colonized and hetero- and homosexualities in order to understand the connections between gender, sexuality, race and power. Themes will include gendered discourses that defined political authority and powerlessness; the roles that women’s bodies played in conceptualizing domesticity and desire; and evolving imperial attitudes toward miscegenation, citizenship and rights.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
