RE251 - Queer(ing) Religious Thought: An Introduction to Queer Studies in Religion

Explores the growing field of queer studies in religion. Students will explore how queerness is always and already present within the sacred texts of religious communities (giving special attention to the Hebrew and Christian scriptures). Students will explore ways in which queer persons queer traditional interpretations of sacred texts, disrupting and reimagining figures and teachings within varying religious faiths, and the discourse of queer theology, a field of study that brings queer studies to bear on Christian theological thought and claims. This course will introduce students to the ongoing discussion of how queer modes of being might be conceived as “religious” and spiritual in and of themselves. Meets the Equity and Power: EPUS requirement.
