AMST 317 - Contemporary Queer Issues


This course will examine historical and contemporary formations of queerness(es) in relationship to institutions, histories and global technologies of power. These include racialization, colonization, the law, the state, markets, imperialism and the production of knowledge defining “queerness” itself. Through a varied, interdisciplinary archive that includes theory, poetry, fiction, film and activist writings, students will be asked to explore how categories of queerness and sexuality more broadly relate to questions of power, desire and justice in the construction of our social worlds.

Prerequisites & Notes: AMST 242; and AMST 301; or instructor permission.
Credits: 5
Grade Mode: Letter
