SOC 3490 - Queer Sexualities and Identity



Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENG 1020, SOC 1010, or GWS 1200; or permission of instructor

Description: This course explores the various ways lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and other sex/gender minorities represent themselves vis-a-vis the social construction of identity. The course analyzes the general strategies lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) individuals (and their communities) utilize to self-identify, as well as resist simplistic notions of self in a post-modern context. We explore issues of queer self-presentation and performance in relation to the intersections between queer identity and race/ethnicity, class, and nationality, as well as social control and power and privilege.

Note: Credit will be granted under one prefix only: GWS or SOC.

Cross Listed Course(s): GWS 3490
