Studies in Gay and Lesbian Literature and Theory

This course focuses on feminist, trans, and queer explorations of gender from the 1970s to the present.  The writers we will read sought to queer gender—to imagine identities outside the gender binary. Their creative reimaginations of gender transform bodies, language, and identities. We will read books by June Arnold, Armistead Maupin, Leslie Feinberg, Ali Smith, and Jane Eaton Hamilton. Students will write five short papers and a final research paper.
