Netherlands: International Perspectives on Sexuality and Gender

SIT offers accredited, field-based study abroad programs in more than 30 countries worldwide.

Netherlands: International Perspectives on Sexuality and Gender

The program examines the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, and religion, and highlights the experiences of the growing number of postcolonial and post-migration subjects living in these intersections. Apart from looking at theories and applications of gender studies, LGBT studies and sexuality studies in activism, the program 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, you will make field visits to different NGOs and organizations advocating for gender, LGBT, and sexual rights; an excursion to Morocco provides additional international perspectives on program themes.
