SOCJ 3200 - Sexuality, Gender Identity, and the Law



Goals: To provide students with an overview of the way U.S. federal and state law regulates sexuality and gender identity, and related aspects of social behavior. In particular, to examine the way that the law provides different rights, privileges, and responsibilities dependent upon one’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity. To further one’s understanding of the relationship between the law, as part of the public sphere, and sexuality and gender identity, which are often understood as predominantly a part of the private sphere.

Content: Topical areas may include, but are not limited to, the conceptualization of sexual orientation and gender identity, historical trends, Constitutional law, employment, marriage, health care, military policy, law enforcement, and hate crime legislation.
