GSFS 317 - Transgender Cultural Studies

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
In the United States, we are in a “transgender moment,” or what Time magazine has called a “transgender tipping point.” In this course, we explore what this moment means for the representation of trans* experience. We will look intersectionally, historically, and globally through multiple genres to interrogate what trans culture is and how we study it. We will ask how interlocking systems of oppression dictate and drive representation and narrative and how trans artists work within or resist these systems to (re)construct their own narratives and images. Together, we will build a digital archive of trans culture.
Prerequisites & Notes: GSFS/CAST 100, GSFS 101.
This course is cross-listed with CAST 317
