Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

What does it mean when a friend tells you to "take care" and to text them when you get home? How does showing up for and caring about each other transform our futures? Using music videos by Lil Nas X and Janelle Monaé, television shows like Pose, and films like Moonlight, this course asks what care can look like and how it helps us survive. This FWS will give you an opportunity to think critically about popular media and written texts with specific attention to the works of queer and trans BIPOC. Students will write about topics of care, self-care, and futures through close readings of various texts and media, short critical essays, and discussion board posts with creative opportunities for extra credit.

When Offered Fall, Spring.
