Aims, contents and method of the course

Sexuality and gender are no longer constant conceptions – and they never have been.
Artificial reproduction and genetic engineering have changed these perceptions and definitions of sexuality and gender dramatically:
1) Artificial reproductive technologies enable reproduction without sex.
2) Blood and gender are no longer the most common basis of kinship.
What are the new conceptions of sex & gender?
What significance will sex & gender obtain?
Do artificial reproductive technologies change or reinforce present social relations?
