ASRC 4800

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

This course traces the genealogies and animating debates in black queer studies. Attentive to the relationship between black feminist criticism and black queer theory, this class proceeds with an understanding of gender and sexuality as intrinsic to the study of blackness in global contexts. Readings will include essays and books from Audre Lorde, E. Patrick Johnson, Christina Sharpe, Robert Reid Pharr, and others. Students will also engage popcultural texts, such as films, music videos, and novels to address the conjecture of blackness and sexuality in critical and vernacular discourse.

When Offered Fall.
