This course seeks to denaturalise notions of love, body, and emotions by exploring their historical and cross-cultural
diversity. Students will examine systems of meanings and practices that evolved around notions of love, body, and
emotions across time and place, and their political significance. In particular, the cross-cultural perspective will
demonstrate the intimate associations of these ‘private emotions and desires’ with social structures such as gender, class,
ethnicity, and religion. It examines both the reproductive role of ideologies about love and intimacy in different
societies, as well as their transformative potential.
