Module overview

This module explores the fascinating, interrelated areas of human sexuality and intimacy. We draw on sociological, criminological, anthropological approaches, amongst others. You'll be asked to critically draw on your own experience and knowledge as we consider how people across the world understand and enact intimacy and sexuality.  We will take a firmly international perspective, locating key theories of sexuality and intimacy in their cultural and historical perspective, and unpicking the limitations of such foundations by close, critical examination of global trends, meanings and experiences.
