Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AFAM 328, FGSS 308
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate, Caribbean Studies Minor, Queer Studies

We will study contemporary Caribbean, African diasporic, and Chicanx writers and artists to consider different codes, fashions, forms, shapes, and registers of queerness and anti-normativity in parts of the Caribbean and the U.S. We will consider the artists' and writers' various relationships to Blackness, whiteness, nonwhiteness, minoritarian positions, their mothers, the domestic, power, and other space-times (e.g., the club, dreams, hallucinations, travel) of being in relation to sexuality, gender, pleasure, and affect.
