After seeing a bumper sticker last summer in Nebraska that said: "If I don't
get laid soon someone is going to get hurt" I decided it was time to put
together a course/and do research on how sexuality and aggression are
I'm putting together a class that I have titled (although I don't like it):
*Narratives of Gender and Sexuality and Aggression* for juniors and seniors.
I plan to use Foucault's History of Sexuality, Sanday's Fraternity Gang Rape,
Benedict's *Virgin or Vamp* (written by a journalism prof. but a good
analysis of the lang. of the media on rape) and maybe Vance's *Pleasure and
Danger* (a collection of articles) and Allison's *Nightwork: Sexuality,
Pleasure and Corporate Masculinity in a Tokyo Hostess Club*"
I would welcome any feedback on these texts and how this appears as a course-
I know of many articles that I might use particularly in reference to
sexuality on college campuses (Mindy Strombler's stuff on "little slutties)
but I am trying to use ethnographies and worried about only appealing to a
female audience---Thanks
