Primary Instructor:

This seminar provides a graduate-level introduction to the interdisciplinary field of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Studies and its various subfields. The course is designed for students in all schools and disciplines. It does not assume prior knowledge but does call on you to engage seriously the questions, perspectives, and approaches of prior work in the field, whatever your program and background. We will engage some of the foundational texts of lesbian and gay studies, noting overlaps and differences among them, and likewise of queer theory and work in multiethnic and global perspectives on same-sex sexualities, queer disability studies, and transgender and intersex studies. Though the field of LGBTQ Studies is by now too vast to be covered exhaustively or systematically, this seminar will seek to provide a grounding in the field, a sense of its range, and knowledge of its current debates. The course satisfies requirements for the Graduate Certificate in LGBTQ Studies.
