The College Fix reports:
Harvard women’s studies course will teach students ‘new models of sexuality’
A class at Harvard University this semester will teach students “new models of sexuality” as it offers a “critique” of “ideological formations of gender.”
“Leaning In, Hooking Up: Visions of Feminism and Femininity in the 21st Century,” offered through the school’s Studies of Women, Gender and Sexuality department, will be instructed by Phyllis Thompson.
“What does it mean to do feminism, or to be a feminist in the 21st-century United States?” the course description asks. “What can we make of the dominant social expectations for a woman’s life?”
Stating that the course “explores contemporary ideals of feminine success, including their physical, familial, professional, and political manifestations,” the description promises that the class will “engage with highly-contested topics,” among them “new models for sexuality, reproduction, family, motherhood, and domestic life.”
“We will critique ideological formations of gender, particularly as bounded by race, class and sexuality,” the description promises.
According to Harvard’s retail cooperative, the textbooks for the course are Lean In by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, Bad Feminist by English professor Roxanne Gay, and the textbook A Brief History of Feminism.
