Advancing Sexualities Studies Short Course
This page is dedicated to the Advancing Sexualities Studies Short Course, intended as a training tool to develop Critical Sexuality Studies research and scholarship.
Academics from across the world have contributed to the creation of course modules covering an exciting range of topics, addressed from multidisciplinary perspectives. Each module is intended to challenge, to promote debate and—perhaps most importantly—to influence future research, education and practice related to sexuality, whether in the field of HIV prevention, teacher training or sexual and reproductive health.
We invite you to take the modules or the whole short course and to make them your own.
The Advancing Sexualities Studies Short Course was funded by the Ford Foundation and was developed by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia, and the International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society (IASSCS). The short course was developed with the support of a Curriculum Working Group.
