SOC 261 Sex and The City 4.0 Credits

This course examines the relationship between urban spaces and sexuality. The course focuses on three themes: the role of sexual and gender minorities in the city; sexual commerce like prostitution and sex work; and the social construction of city problems as sexual and family issues. Urbanization allowed the creation of new urban environments allowing alternative stigmatized sexualities to flourish, while simultaneously revealing sexual inequalities through stigmatization, policing, and divestment. Course topics include: how urban spaces enabled the formation of gay cultures and the role of sexual minorities in gentrification; sex work, sex businesses, and policing; and the social construction of "urban family decline" and questioning "inner-city" single motherhood as a social problem.
