This honors research module extends the scope of G 206 to include
primary research on the history of homosexuality and same-sex sexual
behavior in the United States and abroad.  Students will be given
direct access to the unparalleled resources of the Kinsey
Institute’s library and archives. They will also be expected to use
those resources as the evidentiary foundation for a substantial
historical research paper. Course discussions will address both
common conceptual problems that arise with respect to the history of
sexuality in general and practical strategies and techniques for
conducting archival historical research. This course can only be
taken in conjunction with G 206.
