WGS 3434 - Queer Theory


1 Course Unit(s)
Also listed as PHIL 3434 .
In addition to tracing the history and origins of queer theory, questions we will pursue include: whether knowledge/theory is “sexed,” who gets to theorize about whom and why, whether queer theory differs from gender theory and/or lesbian/gay/bisexual studies, the political implications of queer theory, the roles of race and class in queer theory, whether queer theory is feminist, and whether or not the recent cultural fascination with queerness signals a weakening of heterosexism in our society.
