Exploration of specific problems and issues relevant to the study of women. Offered by visiting or resident faculty members.
This course will explore desire and the politics of sexuality as gendered, raced, classed, and transnational processes. In it, we will explore questions such as: What might "queer desires" be? How have queer desires been (or might be) defined, theorized, recognized, and practiced? And, what does it mean to "queer" desire? Using varied media, we will critically engage the concept of “queer,” engaging key theories and debates in Queer and Sexuality Studies. Topics that we will explore include intimacies and globalization, normality and abnormality, liberalism and neoliberalism, and the politics of visibility in queer movements.
