CAST 403 - Queer Trauma Narratives

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course examines narratives of trauma in queer lives through literature, film, media, and performance in conjunction with trauma theory and psychoanalysis. We pay specific attention to questions of community, healing, violence, and affect in order to explore narration, identity, power, and oppression. We interrogate the purposes these narratives serve, whether as healing methods or as cautionary tales that provide cultural insight at the intersections of queerness and race, sex, disability, class, gender, and ethnicity. By adopting the lens of trauma studies in psychology and psychoanalysis, we look critically at the function of trauma in identity and community formation.
Prerequisites & Notes: CAST 100, GSFS 101, or equivalent.
