Description
This course is an introduction to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ) Studies. Course readings will explore LGBTQ Studies from an interdisciplinary and intersectional perspective with a focus on how sexual orientation and gender shape human experience and access to privilege. Our work will foster a critical understanding of a range of issues in LGBTQ Studies, including LGBTQ as it relates to questions of sexual diversity, the legal history of LGBTQ lives, LGBTQ social movement, LGBTQ health, LGBTQ literature/art, LGBTQ history, global approaches to LGBTQ Studies, and theories and methods in LGBTQ studies. Students will choose a research topic in LGBTQ Studies and will develop a final paper that explores this topic using key concepts, theories, and methods in LGBTQ Studies. Final papers will also reflect on LGBTQ contributions to our understanding of human variation and diversity.
