This course addresses topics of citizenship and sexuality and their implications for individuals and institutions. Throughout this course, we will discuss how sexuality and sexual identities impact citizenship and engage in research focusing on complexities of rapidly changing borders of belonging. The course will mainly consider topics in Europe with a number of exceptions beyond the European continent. The language of instruction is English.
