Queer and Trans* Literatures: Kinship

We will explore the critical, creative and activist possibilities put in motion by placing the terms Queer, Trans*, and Kinship in conversation as we read and discuss from Queer and Trans* identified authors. Readings are connected through investigations, representations and contemplations of queer and trans* kinship. They explore the ‘queerness’ of: childhood, aging, sexuality, parenting, death, class, ethnicity, religion, art, and more. We will develop our ability to read “queerly” as well as “trans*ing” our critical readings skills within the traditions of literary studies.
