What are LGBT/Queer Studies? What does it mean to identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender? Who gets to create knowledge about LGBTQ people? This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying these questions by wrestling with the changing nature of LGBT and Queer as categories across time and space/location. Studies a critical consciousness on LGBTQ issues that recognizes the ways gender and sexuality are complicated by intersectional experiences of race, class, and nationality. Interrogates gender, sex, the “body,” erotic pleasure, sexuality, and sexual orientation as social constructions embedded in power structures, analyzing the impact of myriad intellectual and activist approaches to social policy, popular culture, law and governance, science, and public discourse. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Social Inequality requirement.
