Spring Courses

This spring, for the first time, Gender and Sexuality Studies will offer two courses to be team-taught by graduate students from different PhD programs. The courses were chosen from several outstanding proposals and we are very excited to be offering them. They are “Women Possessed: Religion, Gender, and Sexuality in Early America,” taught by Katie Krywokulski of English and Alison Davis of the Divinity School and “Gender, Sexuality, and Islamic Traditions,” taught by Mariam Sheibani of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations and Timothy Gutmann of the Divinity School. Also in spring, Brandon Hill, Executive Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Innovation in Sexual and Reproductive Health, returns to the Center to teach a new course, “The Gender of Biology.”
