This nine-week course is designed to give participants an overview of contemporary psychoanalytic theory and practice in the broad field of gender and sexuality. The evolution of psychoanalytic thought in the context of changes in society over the past half century will be illuminated as the following topics are explored: developmental aspects of psychosexuality and gender identity; homosexuality; transgender identifications; sexuality as an embodied experience; and perversion.

This session will provide an introductory framework for the course. We will consider historical influences on the development of psychoanalytic theorizing on sexuality and gender identity. In addition, we will take time to determine individual learning objectives for members of the class.
