 SIT Study Abroad Netherlands: International Perspectives on Sexuality and Gender

 

Explore the complexities and paradoxes of gender and sexuality in the Netherlands and Morocco.

 

WHY STUDY GENDER IN THE NETHERLANDS?
Famous for its Red Light District, canals, and bicycles, Amsterdam is also an ideal city in which to explore the intersection of gender and sexuality with race, class, and religion. Meet with activists, academics, and professional sex workers and visit key places like the International Gay and Lesbian Archives and Information Center. In Utrecht and other Dutch cities, speak with sex educators, advocacy groups, and community organizers. Get a Muslim perspective on gender and sexuality during a two-week excursion to Morocco.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
