Mo8 discussion

You can choose to participate in this discussion OR the discussion in the previous module. The due date for this week’s discussion is October 14th at 11:59 pm.

Deadlines, as usual: 

Post your initial post by Thursday at 11:59 pm. Post your two replies by Sunday at 11:59 pm.

What did you find particularly exciting, interesting, or challenging about the assigned content this week? 

Albert Hurtado writes that’s the sexual behavior of Native Americans challenged conventional European ideas about gender. What are two or three key ways that Indian sexual behavior challenged Europeans ideas? 

For this one, make sure to say who the “Berdache”/Two Spirit people were. (Note that “Two Spirit” is the appropriate terminology to refer to gender/sexually variant Native Americans (think “LGBTQ/queer”). “Berdache” is old fashioned but since the reading uses it I include it here in quotes so that you know what I’m referring to).

Your initial discussion post should be at least 250 words, you should answer all questions
