Welcome to Queery Theory! In this class, we will study various representations of LGBTQ+ stories in literature, popular media, and history, and engage in class discussions around our core questions: How do we define good vs. bad representation of queer communities? In what ways do they affect our communities and intersect with matters of race, ethnicity, class, ability, etc?
The structure of our course will be flexible-- we want to adapt to the needs and interests of our students. This is, after all, a class about a community, so we think it should feel like a community as well. Our class is dedicated to being a safe space for everyone, and a place where we can have open, honest, and productive conversations about sometimes difficult topics. On a regular class meeting, we will have big and small group discussions, online posts, and creative assignments to encourage deep and critical thinking throughout the semester. We will be using free reading/viewing/listening materials that depict a wide variety of LGBTQ+ representations to frame our discussions that include, but are not limited to: TV: Glee, Pose, The L Word; Films: Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Bohemian Rhapsody, But I'm a Cheerleader; Music: 'Larry Stylinson'/Harry Styles & Louis Tomlinson, King Princess, Hayley Kiyoko; Literature: Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
