Question 1: “A new framework for an analysis of human sexuality.”
Sexuality has gone from being a matter of “sexual practices” (‘sex’) to being viewed not only as part of the public interest and discourse but also as a distinct academic discipline. Using your readings and the films watched in class, discuss this shift. Explain the emergence and evolution of ‘sexuality.’
Question 2: “Applying the work of Foucault.”
Michel Foucault coined the term "biopower" to refer to the ways in which power manifests itself in the form of daily practices and routines through which individuals engage in self-surveillance and self-discipline, and thereby subjugate themselves. Identify 2 ways in which you (or people in general, if you are uncomfortable speaking about yourself) participate in the practice of sexual self-regulation. Discuss what it means for a society in which people are presumably “sexually liberated.” How does Foucault invite us to consider the notion of ‘power in today’s society?’
