We hereby present the 2004 programme of the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture, and Society organised by the Universiteit of Amsterdam. Participate in courses, seminars and dialogues in Amsterdam on the cultural and social dimensions of human sexuality. The 8th Summer Institute will take place from June 27- July 22, 2004.
Scientific directors are: Carole Vance and Han ten Brummelhuis
This years faculty: Alice Miller, Stefan Dudink, Radhika Chandiramani, Oliver Phillips, Geetanjali Misra, Sea Ling Cheng, Marieke van Doorninck, Shohini Ghosh and Mirjam Schieveld.
The Summer Institute is an intensive four-week summer program which focuses on the study of sexuality across cultures and is taught by an
international faculty team. This highly specialised programme is for advanced students, primarily Ph.D. and MA students in the socio-cultural sciences and professionals working for NGO's.
The institute was founded in 1995 since then students from more than
thirty countries have participated in our courses. Nearly a quarter of the participants have been professionals working for NGO's. The other participants came from such diverse educational backgrounds as the social sciences (anthropology, sociology), psychology, women's studies, history, public health and human sexuality studies. Statements of former students can be found on the website.
We expect a 2004 class of approximately 25 students. The Institute's
classes are intensive small group seminars, with discussions, lectures and guest lectures by prominent people in the field.
