Scandinavia is known for its liberal views on gender and sexuality and this course explores current Scandinavian debates on gender equality, the role of men and masculinity, family structures, homosexuality, sex education, the rights of transsexuals, and prostitution. How do concepts of gender, body, race, and sexuality intersect with concepts of normality and what are some of the new ethical dilemmas, gender roles, and ideals in a changing Scandinavia?
