Public university to offer course on ‘sibling incest’

I thought this was an interesting article to include – A public university plans to offer a course this spring on “sibling incest in theory and literature.”

Professor Stefani Engelstein will teach a class this spring focused on “sibling incest.”

According to the University of Missouri’s official description, the class will “examine the deployment of erotic desire, love, and sympathy as political, economic, and textual strategies, and analyze the gender dynamics involved in such deployment.”

Professor Stefani Engelstein of the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies will teach class in hour-long sessions twice a week.

The official description says the course will focus on “the way incest functions to establish or to upset identity in the context of national, religious, racial, and familial structures.”

The university did not make a spokesperson available for comment, despite multiple requests from Campus Reform. Engelstein did not respond to requests for comment.

Engelstein, who will teach the class, has also authored a number of scholarly articles on the topic of sibling incest and a book entitled Sibling Logic: Incest, Collective Identity, and the Subject.

In a YouTube video of Engelstein lecturing, she predicts genders roles will soon dissolve because they are outdated.
