Rooted in philosophy, literary theory and other humanities projects, queer theory can trace important elements of its genealogy to postmodern feminism, lesbian and gay studies, as well as queer activist practices. Sexualities studies is rooted in developments in sociology, anthropology, psychology and other social and human sciences, and exists in critical dialogue with queer theory. The use of the term ?queer and sexualities? studies is intended to include recent developments in trans studies. Students will explore the intersections of queer and sexualities theories with critical race, disabilities, intersex and transnational perspectives, in preparation for a community-engagement research project that investigates everyday struggles for actualization in evolving constructions of queer-positive publics.


Students must be enrolled in the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
