The course ‘Introduction to Advancing Sexuality Studies: A short course on sexuality theory and research methodologies’ was developed by the Caribbean Region of the International Resource Network and presented through a partnership with the Institute of Gender & Development Studies at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine (Trinidad & Tobago).
The first short course was developed by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia, and the International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society.
The course was designed and taught as a four-week intensive and overview of the field of Sexuality Studies. The modules/topics were taught by five instructors at the IGDS in Summer 2013 — John Campbell (UWI St. Augustine); Alison Donnell (University of Reading); Rosamond S. King (Brooklyn College); Colin Robinson (CAISO), and Angelique V. Nixon (Susquehanna University).
As co-chairs of the Caribbean IRN, Rosamond S. King and Angelique V. Nixon were the main organisers and facilitators of the course and course materials.
