Queer Theory, Queer Lives

Queer Theory, Queer Lives (WS 250) 

An interdisciplinary exploration of the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and intersexed people. Examines scholarly and activist definitions of sexual identity, especially as these have intersected with race, class, gender, ethnicity, and age, and discusses the ways sexual desire often escapes, complicates, or is “mismatched” with, fixed gender roles and dominant cultural categories.
