Sexual Desire Across Cultures: Leveraging Study Abroad Back on Campus

Key to the Pocket Anthropologist is connecting Goucher students abroad with Goucher students back in classrooms on campus. In the Spring of 2014, Dr. Jamie Mullaney's Sociology Seminar on Sex, Selves and Society worked with Goucher students abroad to study Desire Across Cultures. The seminar students had their colleagues abroad complete two "culture treks" on desire. The first desire trek had the students capture aspects of desire in marketing in their host countries. The second desire trek had the students interview someone in their host country about desire and capture an image that highlighted their views on desire. The following video takes these insights and integrates them into the larger student research project the seminar students completed on campus.
