CORE COURSE 

Gender, Equality, and Sexuality in Scandinavia 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Sweden is often referred to as the most gender equal country in the world, with generous parental leave, a high number of women in leadership positions, progressive sex education, and equal rights for homosexuals among its hallmarks. However, good intentions do not always translate into intended outcomes. We compare how concepts of gender, body, and sexuality intersect in current debates about changing family structures, children’s rights, and new ethical dilemmas across Scandinavia. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin 
Core Course Week: Study tour within Sweden + a two-day seminar in Stockholm
