Investigates various ways in which sexuality is both a distinct part of our experience and our world, and also always in interaction with other aspects of cultural and social life like gender, class, age, race and nation. The unit emphasises thinking critically about the ways in which sexuality is represented in a variety of settings, the power relations produced through discourses of sexuality, and the ways in which sexuality is lived by diverse people, drawing primarily on the Australian context. The unit draws on approaches from the history of sexuality, cultural studies, and feminist, gay and lesbian, and queer scholarship. It makes extensive use of Australian independent film as a way of presenting alternative representations of sexuality.
