What is the relationship between race, gender, sexuality, and politics in the American past? This course will introduce students to the historical study of African American LGBTQ life in the 20th century by way of reading interdisciplinary scholarship and writing expository prose. Students will read texts by authors such as Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, and Angela Davis and examine primary sources such as newspaper articles, magazines, film, and music to enhance analytic writing skills. Students will also complete individual writing exercises and collaborative activities that highlight key components of the academic writing process. Such assignments include regular journal entries, reading responses, abstract and thesis development tasks, and peer-review workshops.
