Download GWS 534_2018_FALL_Barcelos

This course explores several theoretical lenses, disciplinary approaches, and substantive topical areas relating to reproductive and sexual health. We will begin the course by investigating the development of "sexual health" as a phenomenon in public health research, policy, and programs looking back to feminist responses to population control policies of the 1970s. The subsequent weeks of the semester will cover substantive topical areas in the field (e.g., adolescent sexual development, contraception, and AIDS).
