FYSP 134 - Crossing Borders: The Mysteries of Identity

Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4HU, WR
In Western cultures, identity has tended to be defined in binary terms: an individual is either black or white, male or female, straight or gay, and so on. This seminar will seek to explore the nature of identity by focusing on fiction, essays, and films in which categories of identity - specifically those of race, gender and sexuality - are represented as fluid and ambiguous rather than as fixed and polarized.
