Jackman Humanities Building, Room 627Email: email@example.comBrief Description of Course:
This course is designed as an introduction to the methods, approaches, and practices of queer studies. We will take up how theories of the intersectional categories of gender, sexuality, and race function as a useful approach for reading and understanding cultural forms, including literature, popular culture, and the visual arts. A principal goal of the course will be to equip ourselves with new analytic perspectives that will enhance and even alter our work in literary and cultural studies. To meet this goal, we will focus on conceptual developments, debates, and methodological issues that chart the multiple genealogies of the still-unfolding discipline of queer studies.Required Reading:
