Queer of Color Critique

AFAM 259
Spring 2024
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Queer Studies

This course will serve as an introduction to the debates, theoretical interventions, and methodological concerns that frame and inform a "queer of color critique." In this course we will observe how the scholarly contributions of LGBTQ people of color complicate, revise and/or reimagine the fundamental presumptions of queer theory. We will be exploring the emergence and development of "queer of color" knowledge production and activism in relation to the field(s) of black studies, film studies, queer theory, and African American literary production. This course will cover specific topics like gender, sexuality, culture, diaspora, and mutuality, paying special attention to the politics, ethics, and aesthetics of race and racial difference.
