Multidisciplinary Analysis of Human Sexuality and Diversity General Instructions Select Marriage and divorce and develop a paper that analyzes issues of human sexuality from multidisciplinary perspectives. Apply concepts from three distinctly different disciplines of human study to analyze the particular phenomenon, see listing below one from each column. Incorporate theoretical frameworks, theoretical constructs and other explanations that have been used by these disciplines to create a perspective that will provide a possible explanation for the issue.
