This course will examine the positive and negative impact of globalization regarding sexualities. This may include an exploration of the political implications of inclusivity, branding as a phenomenon of power, creation of global and local sexual identities in a transnational market, the politics of sex work and sexual identity, trafficking with regard to race, gender and sexuality, etc. Globalization challenges gendered power conceptions; this course will ask how global communities are responding to this challenge in their efforts towards justice making.
