  11. 11. General Objectives <ul><li>International Component </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaboration between scholars and public intellectuals from the South. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Construct cross-cultural and cross-discipline methodologies for teaching that will be applied in local contexts. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Explore possible interdisciplinary links between academia, political, and activist arenas in order to promote ground-breaking theoretical work, materials, and research frameworks in the fields of sexuality and gender. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Institutional Component </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To assess capacity of public and private universities located in each country for the formal inclusion of these topics. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reshape current debates regarding gender and sexualities by distributing our results, debates, and materials in an international meeting, as well through group participation in international academic conferences.  </li></ul></ul>Sexuality in the Academic Curricula in Universities in Asia, Africa and Latin America
  12. 12. Methodology <ul><li>Research and Action </li></ul><ul><ul><li>During eighteen months we will conduct our research through forums and critical analysis of scholarly journals that include studies on sexuality issues. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teams will use research results to engage in curricula development in public or private universities that already have sexuality courses. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>During this last phase we will conduct periodic evaluations in each country, sub-regional and international meetings, and continually seek forms of distributing our findings. </li></ul></ul>Sexuality in the Academic Curricula in Universities in Asia, Africa and Latin America
  13. 13. Research Questions <ul><li>What schools of thought and references are used in each country that influence the teaching of sexuality and gender? </li></ul><ul><li>Does the teaching of gender consider socio-economic factors, sexual citizenship, and sexual diversity? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the most effective methodologies, theories, and practices what can overcome existing limitations to the integration of sexualities in academic curricula? </li></ul><ul><li>How can we build informed academic constituencies in the humanities, social sciences, medicine, and law so that curricula can translate into political transformation? </li></ul>Sexuality in the Academic Curricula in Universities in Asia, Africa and Latin America
  14. 14. Project Results <ul><li>Researchers and local teams will participate in technical committees and engage in the direct incorporation of sexuality and gender content in academic curricula. </li></ul><ul><li>Research results that will serve to establish cross-cultural comparisons which will be presented as chapters of a book, working papers, collective publications, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Exchange of skills, results, and policy impact among scholars, advocates, policy makers, and activists that will translate into programmatic action in the medium term. </li></ul>Sexuality in the Academic Curricula in Universities in Asia, Africa and Latin America
