New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018

AAAS 32.02 Black Queer Literature and Film

This seminar will combine elements of black (trans) feminist theory and black queer theory to examine the written works and films/videos by and about lesbians, bisexual, transgender, gay and queer Black people.  Emphasis will be on tracing the emergence of black literary and cinematic voices from the late twentieth century to the present. We will read poetry, fiction and essays as well as watch films with an eye towards  understanding the historical and theoretical construction of sexual and gender identities, politics and sexual/cultural practices in Black communities. Special attention will be paid to the construction of race, gender and sexual identities in North America, the Caribbean and the United Kingdom.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
