An introduction to the transnational study of feminist and queer politics that explores the geopolitics, uneven power relations, normative assumptions and exclusions that go into the making of feminist and LGBTQ politics transnationally. Examines how the politics of gender and sexuality get enmeshed in imperial, Eurocentric, nationalist, neoliberal, racialized, heteronormative, homonormative, military, elitist and other transnational circuits of power. Explores how feminist and queer politics operate not only as struggles against various forms of power but also as modalities of power. Considers the ethical implications this has for our understanding and practice of feminist and queer politics transnationally. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures requirement. (Not offered 2018-19).
Prerequisite: Feminist & Gender Studies 110, Feminist & Gender Studies 200, or consent of instructor.
