Program Description:

Acquire an intersectional understanding of the complexities and paradoxes that surround issues of gender and sexuality in the Netherlands—commonly believed to be one of the world’s most progressive and tolerant countries.

netherlandsThe program examines the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, and religion and highlights the experiences of the growing number of individuals living in these intersections. It interrogates how identity is affected by gender, sexuality, race, religion, and class, both as they are experienced and as they are perceived.  During the program, students connect with different communities within the Netherlands; an excursion to Morocco provides additional international perspectives on program themes.

Major topics of study include:

  • attitudes toward gender, sexuality, race, class, and religion within white, Muslim, and Afro-Caribbean communities
  • queer, LGBT, and feminist movements
  • migration, gender, and sexuality
  • same-sex marriage rights
  • transgender issues
  • sex education
