ENGL-261 Introduction to Queer Theory
Fall for 2014-2015
Faculty:
  • Brogan, Jacob
  • This course provides an overview of the theoretical, historical and political contexts for “queer theory” as it intersects with and informs the evolving interdisciplinary fields of sexuality and gender studies. Topics to be considered include: the emergence of modern sexual identity; queer community-building and world-making, theoretical and political remappings of the body and of sexuality; diasporic, transnational and global queer studies; the relationship between queer theory and (trans)gender studies; queer pasts and queer futures. Students will be expected to engage actively in both in-class and online discussion, to give one in-class presentation and to write several short papers and a final multimedia project.
    Credits: 3
    Prerequisites: None
