The undergraduate minor in Sexuality and Gender Studies addresses human sexuality and gender as they have been conceptualized and investigated by diverse disciplines: humanities (including history and cultural studies), behavioral and social sciences, biological sciences, and visual and performance arts. Courses in the minor require students to explore scholarship and research on sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender across the lifespan, across cultures, and throughout history. Developing students' critical skills in a variety of disciplines, courses in the minor cover theories of sexuality and gender; sexual orientation; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender movements; the history of sexual norms; queer theory; gender identity; and impact of gender identities and erotic orientations on the arts; etc.

Announcing the third and final installment of the QVC (Queer Visual Culture) lecture series:
"All Is Not Lost," a lecture by artist Patricia Cronin
Thursday, March 29, 4:30 PM 112 Borland
Who gets written into history? Who is forgotten? Why, how and what are the conditions in which eradication can occur? How is value determined? These elements coalesce at the intersection of the ivory tower and the art market that is the catalogue raisonné. Patricia Cronin will discuss her two most recent projects Harriet Hosmer, Lost and Found, A Catalogue Raisonné and her acclaimed statement on gay marriage, a three ton marble mortuary statue Memorial To A Marriage.
