Course Description:

This course will the relationship between sexuality and time. Namely, scholars have been increasingly interested in thinking about the effects of western society's celebration of certain life events--(heterosexual) marriage and parenthood--and how we can interpret the life experiences of individuals who do not (or cannot) follow this path. While this course will focus on reading literature and watching films, it will take an interdisciplinary approach to do so by drawing on the work of literary scholars, historians, biologists, and sociologists. Assignments for this class will include short papers and an in-class presentation.
