We are pleased to let you know that the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture, and Society will be held for the 9th time this summer, from July 3-28 at the International School for Humanities and Social Sciences, Universiteit van Amsterdam.
Participate in courses, seminars and dialogues in Amsterdam on the cultural and social dimensions of human sexuality.
Scientific directors are: Carole Vance and Stefan Dudink
Faculty: Alice Miller, Radhika Chandiramani, Geetanjali Misra, Mirjam Schieveld, Sea Ling Cheng, Marieke van Doorninck, Rachel Spronk and Shohini Gosh.
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 five 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 2005 class of approximately 25-30 students. The Institute's classes are intensive small group seminars, with discussions, lectures and guest lectures by prominent people in the field.
Applications must be addressed to the Universiteit van Amsterdam at the below address. You can visit our web-site for an application form.
