Chris Jones – “Sexual Utopias”
Noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 18. in the Lincoln room. Come join several students from the course as they present their projects at the Gender Brown Bag. Sex makes humans, but it is also something that humans make. What if it could be remade? In the Fall semester course Jews, Christians, and Sex, students are reading utopian accounts of human sexuality from Greek, Roman, Christian and Jewish antiquity. As a term project, students develop their own sexual utopias that incorporate ideas from these sources and present them in the form of an “unessay” (a project that can be literally anything except an essay).
