Brief Description of Course:
How do art and literature imagine and mediate bodies and pleasures, sexualities and sexual practices? This course addresses such questions by exploring a range of texts we will call queer? (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, gender variant, gender resistant and so forth). We will ask what a study of sexuality teaches us, and how it functions as a useful approach for reading literary and cultural forms. We will investigate different accounts of intimacy, fantasy, identity, and desire, paying particular attention to the various ways that race, gender, class, age, and history intersect with representations of queer sexuality. Assignments will include classical, modern, postmodern, and contemporary literature, criticism, art, film, and music.
