Folklore and Sexuality

Sexuality is not only a biological act or fact, it also has a creative and aesthetic element.  This course examines the folklore elements of sexuality and includes historical readings such as the Bible and the Decameron as well as a contemporary look at topics such as body art and clothing choice.  A field-based paper will be required and a final examination will be given on class discussions and readings.
