Fall 2007 not offered
This course will take a critical approach to gender politics and the history of queer studies. Students will be asked to consider how interventions in the 1980s and 1990s by both queer and critical race studies changed the landscape of women's studies, and inaugurated the current era of gender politics. How did women's studies become transformed by the feminist sex wars, gay and lesbian studies, and queer theory? We will also examine how the disciplinary boundaries of these areas of study are still in flux and deeply entwined with other branches of area studies, including postcolonial studies, diaspora studies, and studies of empire and imperialism.
