What spaces are available for imagining non-normative sexualities and non-binary genders in mainstream and alternative media? This class moves beyond a simple consideration of how lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and queer people have been represented in the mainstream media to consider how media offer LGBTQ people alternative platforms for queer world-making. Further, this course is an exploration in our own queer world-making. Each assignment asks you to create a visual work that engages with materials from the class and from popular and queer media. This course is not about making "good" or "pretty" art, but about using creative processes to think differently—queerly—about LGBTQ representations. This class guides an adventure in looking differently at the world, including the media world, through the practice of queer making.

When Offered Fall, Spring.
