fee EUR 584

Sex is one of the most basic human drives and plays a central role in our personal and interpersonal behaviour. Sex is the means of biological reproduction, and to a large extent, selection, whereas gender describes psychological and sociological representations of self, identity, and orients a person’s attraction to others. As crucial as sexuality is to humankind, it is often viewed as a taboo topic for personal or scientific inquiry. The few courses taught on the subject tend to focus on one specific area such as contemporary history, anthropology, or psychology. An important factor that has been largely overlooked is the interplay between sexuality, gender and the brain. The present course provides an interdisciplinary approach with an emphasis on neuroscience.
