The Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society from University of Amsterdam examines the complexity and changing interactions over time between the self, and culture within the context of human sexuality and society - it also addresses how this complexity is conceptualized and organized culturally, politically, as theorized and practiced across disciplines and programmatic venues.


Key facts:

  • During this four-week Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society from University of Amsterdam, participants will build on their already extensive knowledge of sexuality as it intersects with ethnicity, nationality, class, and religion, and will deepen their familiarity with how sexuality is conceptualized and practiced within research, programmatic, and advocacy venues. 
  • Each year, the Summer Institute is comprised of a multidisciplinary international faculty and student body from a range of social and cultural backgrounds, offering a rewarding and challenging learning experience.  
  • Participants engage with faculty and guest lecturers via a specialized program of course modules (twice daily), weekly get-togethers, and informal conversations during daily group lunches.  Participants benefit from an exceptional networking opportunity through the sharing of experiences, works in progress, research plans and diverse perspectives.

Programme Structure

After an introductory module and professional identities and values clarification, this year's Summer Institute will focus on:

  • Sexual politics in the Netherlands, past and present
  • Sexology (arousal, sexual problems, and development - presented from a biopsychosocial approach from a Dutch perspective)
  • Comprehensive sexuality education (positive sexual development, best practices, and models for implementation and contextualization)
  • Sexuality and religion
  • The construction of difference in contemporary sexualities and intimacies (in (non)traditional relationships)
