Prostitution & the Sex Trade

What are the consequences – financially, emotionally, and socially – of prostitution and sex work? Should prostitution and sex work be legal or illegal? Selling sex is legal in Denmark and across Europe, but each country has vastly different approaches and policies regarding prostitution and sex work. Delve into how national cultures construct their own narratives about sex, gender, and rights, and how they grapple with conflicting views on sex for sale.

Core Course

Prostitution and the Sex Trade in Europe
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

Focus on prostitution and sex work in Europe as a starting point and then expand to countries globally. Gain insight into historical, cultural, legal, and political aspects of prostitution and examine current and future consequences of the varying national approaches across Europe. You also examine prostitution from different perspectives ranging from that of sex workers, customers, and anti-trafficking advocacy groups, to law enforcement officials and politicians.

Core Course Study Tours

This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: Amsterdam/the Hague

  • Core Course Week: Southern Sweden or Denmark

Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
 
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
