Learning Outcomes
Students will be encouraged to examine the way in which gender roles were conceptualised during the Renaissance (that is, what did it mean to be 'masculine' or 'feminine'),focusing especially on the expression, or repression, of sexual desire. Students will examine heterosexual, homosexual and homosocial relationships and learn to explore the relevance of these categories to Shakespearean texts. Students will also be asked to consider how issues of race and/or nationality intersect with the construction of gender and sexuality.
