Starting with the constructionist approach of analyzing the sexual dynamics of ancient civilizations, we will expose how sex has been used as a political tool to further the cause of unrelated agendas, how attitudes about sex have changed from Greco-Roman times to the 1960's sexual revolution, culminating in the current political debate about Vermont's civil union laws. Join us in this academic endeavor to understand our roles as sexual beings both in history and in politics, as well as an exploration of our own attitudes towards differing sexualities.
