GWS 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Queer and Trans Literatures

4 credits (Fall)
This course surveys 20th and 21st-century queer and trans literatures through contemporary queer and feminist theory. In addition to reading the works of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer authors, we will inquire into the implications of studying and categorizing literature in relation to gender and sexuality. We will examine representations of queer and trans identities and themes through a variety of literary forms including novels, short stories, plays, poems, graphic novels, and semi-autobiographical fiction.

Prerequisite: GWS 111  and GWS 249 .  
Instructor: Allen
