Two New Fall Undergraduate Courses

The Women's Studies Program added two new courses for fall 2141 semester. It isn't too late to enroll!

WOMNST 1170    Queer Theory

Instructor: Julie Beaulieu

Time: Mondays & Wednesdays, 4:30pm- 5:45pm

Class Number: 28970

Queer Theory offers an introduction to “queer” as a method of analysis and as an approach to activism and cultural activity. Through the course readings, we will explore the historical precedents that participated in the emergence of “queer” as a school of thought and political stance. This course aims to provide students with the tools to apply queer theory to contemporary questions, enabling them to create queer readings of culture, identity, and politics. We will consider the connectedness of sexuality to other aspects of life, queer responses to cultural norms, and applications of queer theory to everyday life.
