20478 The Biology of Gender Identification and Sexual Orientation   

This course takes an extensive look at why we are who we are in terms of gender identity and sexual orientation. We will explore social and medical history, and the embryology, genetics, and endocrinology of sexuality. We also will study animal and natural experiments that explain the biological source of sexuality. Finally, we’ll have discussions about the psychology and sociology of gender dysphoria, as well as the concept of homophobia.

 

This course is now in session. To inquire about registration, email: olli@umn.edu
