For the fourth year in a row, I’m directing a program in Amsterdam that will introduce undergrad and grad students to the cultural comparative study of human sexuality and sexual health education in a context where sexual health outcomes are the best in the world.
The Netherlands has comprehensive sex education, regulated and decriminalized prostitution, and was one of the first to legalize gay marriage. With their openness to sexuality and emphasis on talking about sex and sexuality with parents, peers, and educators from a young age, sexuality is seen as a healthy part of human development rather than something of which to be ashamed. Students will be immersed in this culture through homestay experiences, excursions, and a field study workshop. Students will spend three weeks learning from the Dutch model of sexuality and sexual health education.
We are currently accepting applications to the Summer 2017 cohort. It will run from May 14-June 4, 2017 and is open to undergraduate and graduate students within and outside of University of Kentucky. For more information and to apply, click below, or get in contact with me.
