GWS189B PO - LGBTQ Social Movements in the US

When Offered: Last offered fall 2018.
Instructor(s): Staff
Credit: 1

This interdisciplinary course will examine the development of LGBTQ social movements in the US by linking the context, goals, and outcomes of movements to the dynamics of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, ability, immigration status, and geography. Our goal will be to understand the ways that LGBTQ social movements impact and are impacted by cultural and governmental institutions, and how these relationships have determined contemporary queer life, politics and thought. We will also examine several ongoing issues that have inspired LGBTQ organizing. We will incorporate non-academic critical sources, video clips, films, guest speakers, community events into our learning environment in order to explore the multiple facets of LGBTQ political work. Letter grade only.
