Lifelong Sexuality and Intimacy This course takes students on an academic journey from hooking up in college to hooking up in senior centers, as people are living--and dating--longer than ever. The curriculum addresses sexuality across the lifespan, with a particular focus on how intimacy changes as life changes. The course considers how sex and intimacy change after a number of significant life events, including childbirth, illness, infidelity, coming out, breaking up, midlife, menopause, and through the "golden years." This course is designed for a non-gender specific audience and gives both a modern take and historical perspective on the acceptance and prevalence of embracing one's sexuality throughout the lifespan. Meets with WSEM-396 002T.

The Gay 80s The 1980s signaled a renewed emergence of gays and lesbians in mainstream America. Challenged as never before by the menace and stigma of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), the path of the modern Gay and Lesbian Movement and the perception of its community was recast. This course follows the history of gay and lesbian activism through this transformative decade, as the community mobilized to fight the epidemic and became increasingly visible and involved in American culture, entertainment, media, and politics.
