Program Overview

Program Description:

The study of human sexuality involves understanding its complexity and how it represents changing interactions over time involving the self, the body, culture, and power -- and as well, how this complexity is conceptualized and organized culturally, politically and epistemologically.

During this four-week advanced programme, students will gain knowledge of sexuality as it intersects with ethnicity, nationality, class, and religion, and will become more familiar with how sexuality is conceptualized and practiced within research, programmatic, and advocacy venues.

Each year, the Summer Institute is comprised of a multidisciplinary international faculty and student body from a range of social and cultural backgrounds, offering a rewarding and challenging learning experience.  Students engage with faculty and guest lecturers via a specialized program of course modules (twice daily), weekly get-togethers, and informal conversations during daily group lunches.  Students benefit from an exceptional networking opportunity through the sharing of experiences, works in progress, research plans and diverse perspectives.

As the host city for the Summer Institute, Amsterdam is an ideal location.  The open atmosphere and small scale of the city offers a refreshing setting for engagement and discussion of sexuality, culture and society.
