WGST 4001 Queer Theory

4 semester hours

This course explores the emergence, conceptual frameworks, themes, and critical tools of queer theory. This course critically analyzes sex, gender, and sexuality and the gaps between them and their interactions, as well as how these concepts are implicated in or frame many other discourses, such as the war on terror, aesthetics, death, history, race, ethics, monstrosity, nationalism, affect, punk rock, colonialism, temporality, and gentrification.

Junior or senior standing required.
