Queer Studies- Summer 2013

Queer Studies
 
Summer 2013: WMST 395
4:00pm - 7:15pm, Mondays/Wednesdays
 
Fall 2013: WMST 303
7:10pm - 9:50pm, Mondays
 
This course is a study of LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer) experiences.
It introduces students to personal, cultural, and political aspects of queer life while examining social forces such as heteronormativity, the social construction of gender, and homophobia.
 
Just a few of the questions we will tackle:
·         How do we define queer? Isn’t that term offensive?
·         How do race/gender/class intersect with sexual orientation?
·         How and why have queer histories, experiences, and knowledge been rendered invisible?
·         What does the Holocaust have to do with LGBT people?
·         What were the Stonewall riots?
