ETHN 3101
The course centers queer/trans of color theorizations, indigenous queer/trans/two spirit critiques, and queer/trans perspectives from the global south to understand gender and sexuality. Building upon intersectional, transnational, and decolonial feminist frameworks, the course investigates identities as a product of time- and place-specific beliefs, practices, and processes, and how other categories of social difference (assigned sex, race, ethnicity, indigeneity, religion, nationality, citizenship status, social class, disability etc.) intersect with gender and sexuality.  We will read across genres, including academic texts, non-fiction, fiction, films, biographies, television series, zines and art projects to understand contemporary critiques of gender and sexuality. The course will be divided into three sections. First section provides the theoretical and historical framework by studying queer/trans of color and Indigenous critiques as well as transnational queer/trans perspectives. In the second section, we will explore how these critiques help us understand different contemporary political struggles. The third section delves into some of the fissures and challenges that have informed queer/trans conceptions of love, desire, and solidarity within and beyond the US.
