Teaching love and sex in the era of #MeToo

Around the water cooler, on social media and the red carpet, the talk is about #MeToo and the wave of sexual misconduct allegations in the headlines. The conversation is also unfolding in university classrooms.

In a new sociology course, Associate Professor Jooyoung Lee encourages his students not to shy away from contentious topics like what constitutes consent. The course focuses on subjects everyone can relate to: love, sex and relationships.

Medieval artifact

U of T course lets students hold history in their hands

A University of Toronto course is letting students get a real feel for medieval artifacts.
