Sexuality and Human Rights: Theory, Policy, Media, and Advocacy

School of Consciousness and Transformation TLD 6797 3.00

This course is an introduction to the relatively new area of sexual, gender, and reproductive rights viewed from the perspectives of human rights and policy formation in the U.S. and globally. Interdisciplinary by nature, rights-based studies involve historical, social and cultural, political, and media-based investigations. Each class will open with a recent media story that will focus discussion of transformational leadership in sexuality and rights. Each student will make one major presentation of a case study or paper that may be based upon an actual Bay Area case study, or a state, national, or global policy issue.
