LGBT 400 - Queer Theory


Class Hours: 3
Lab/Discussion: 0
Credits: 3

Familiarizes students with the scholarship and theories surrounding sexualities, sexual identities, and gender identities. Examines the literature and evidence on the ways in which social forces influence sexualities and gender (orientation, identity) as well as performance (how we humans act out our sexuality). Analyzes literatures on the diversity of non-hegemonic desires, behaviors, orientations, identities, and communities and related issues from a trans-historical, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary perspective. Explores the ways human sexualities and gender identities are themselves social forces as societies respond to sexual variations in terms of identities such as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and a range of heterosexualities.
