Description


This interdisciplinary course introduces students to the study of sexualities from the perspective of lesbian, gay, queer, bisexual, and transgender scholarship. Throughout, we consider the relation between erotic desire and sexual politics, as well as the interplay between sexualities and differences of ethnicity, culture, race, class, and gender. Theoretical, historical, and cross-cultural perspectives will be explored as the class covers topics including visibility and silence, identity politics, simultaneous oppressions, heteronormativity, homophobia, pre-modern, early modern and modern sexualities, intersexuality, transgender and transsexuality, bisexuality, queerness, and activism.
