EGST 0312 - Queer Literature and Theory

Credits: 3

Crosslisted: ENGL 0312 

Introduces the field of queer theory as a framework for approaching literary texts by and about GLBT individuals that explore and challenge seemingly stable identity categories of gender and sexuality and their intersections with race, class and ability. Recognizing queer theory’s roots in social activism, GLBT social movements, history, culture and identity, participants will explore some of the major critical trends in queer theory. Particular attention will be paid to literary texts and understanding the socio-cultural frameworks within which they are produced, with consideration of issues such as global diversity, oppression, and social activism.

Prerequisites: ENGL 0102 .
