This class will examine the history of state formation in relation to the emergence of new sexual identities, sexual communities, and campaigns to control sexuality that play an increasingly prominent role in United States politics after 1968. In addition to examining the nature of state regulation aimed at defining categories of sexual citizenship, the course will emphasize the means of attaining citizenship available to sexual minorities; among these are the production of knowledge, litigation, electoral participation, and rights-based organizing.
