WS 296U - Topic: Transgender Studies

Course Description: Transgender Studies charts a dynamic yet underexplored field within the history and culture of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) movement in the U.S. This course examines the growing set of identities and practices organized under the heading of "trans": androgyny; cross-dressing and drag; two-spirit or third gender concepts; transsexualism and in some cases, intersex; and more. We will be studying novels and autobiographical writings; readings in queer theory, psychoanalysis, and sociology; and documentary and narrative film.
