Course Description

WGSS 072
Introduction to Queer Studies
Spring

An introduction to key concepts and theoretical questions in the interdisciplinary field of queer studies. This course explores the processes by which sexuality is socially constructed in different historical and geographical contexts, with particular attention to the ways in which sexuality intersects with other categories of difference such as race, gender, class, ability, and national origin. The course introduces students to a range of issues affecting different queer communities and explores historical and contemporary examples of queer resistance.
