GWS 295-04 - Special Topic: Trans Film and Media

4 credits (Spring)
This course provides a critical perspective on our current conjuncture of mainstream trans visibility and representation via a focus on film and other media since the 1990s. The course surveys both popular depictions as well as alternative cultural production by and for trans communities. Central attention will be paid to how trans representations intersect with race, capital, immigration, and disability; the class will also critically unpack the fraught relationship between cultural representation and political “progress.” 

Prerequisite: GWS 111
