CORE COURSE 

Gender, Equality, and Sexuality in Scandinavia 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Sweden is the most gender equal country in the world and paid parental leave for all parents, a high number of women in leadership positions, progressive sex education, and equal rights for homosexuals are among the hallmarks of all Scandinavian societies. However, Sweden also has the most gender-divided workplace in the world and gender equal policies do not automatically lead to gender equal behaviors. With a comparative look to neighboring countries in Europe, this course explores how concepts of gender, body, sexuality, and race intersect in current debates about changing family structures, children’s rights, and new ethical dilemmas in a changing Scandinavia.
Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin 
Core Course Week: Sweden
