Please also note the following about the vibrant field of Sexuality
Studies at Ohio State:

(1) The English Department at Ohio State has an area group in Gender
and Sexuality Studies, and two permanent courses in the field: 282:
Introduction to Queer Studies and 580: GLBTQ Studies in Literature and
Culture. We also have other courses that are sometimes taught with a
sexuality focus, including film and theory courses at both the
undergrad and graduate levels.

(2) Ohio State offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor and an
interdisciplinary graduate specialization in Sexuality Studies, and by
the time the person starts the job, we should also have a
free-standing interdisciplinary undergraduate major (we'll be one of
the few schools in the country to have all three of these degrees).
Over 30 faculty members in six colleges and 14 departments are
affiliated with the Sexuality Studies Program, and we offer
approximately 20 permanent courses in the area. The Sexuality Studies
minor is the 2nd-highest enrolling interdisciplinary minor at OSU,
with approximately 300 students enrolling since it began in 2002, and
the graduate specialization has been selected by 30 students in it
four years of existence. http://sexualitystudies.osu.edu/

(3) Sexuality Studies is closely partnered with other
identity/culture-based programs via the formation known as DISCO
(Diversity and Identity Studies Collective at OSU), which is composed
of African American and African Studies, American Indian Studies,
Asian American Studies, Comparative Ethnic and American Studies,
Disability Studies, Latino/a Studies, Sexuality Studies, and the newly
named Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. http://disco.osu.edu/
