Gender, sexuality and bodies are ubiquitous in images, reports, films, and also as a topic of conversation. Against the background of social and cultural process of change, which can be characterized by pluralism of forms of life and love, more dynamic identity, dissolution of gender boundaries and decoupling of sexuality and reproduction, interesting psychological themes and issues emerge.

The seminar is a study of prevailing discourses in the context of gender, sexuality and bodies, standardization practices and subjective theories. Based on the social constructivism we will understand these topics as a historicall, culturall and sociall constructions of reality.

The theoreticalframework of the seminar is provided by: classify sexual science, social constructivism, discourse analysis, queer theory, psychoanalysis and psychological approaches from gender studies and the reflexive social psychology.
