WGSS | Minor in Sexuality and Queer Studies

Sexuality and Queer Studies (Minor)

Offered by the Critical Race, Gender, and Culture Studies Collaborative, College of Arts and Sciences, the Minor in Sexuality and Queer Studies examines familiar issues in gender/sexuality studies (including lesbian, gay, bi and trans studies, masculinities, and feminist theory). But here, the starting point for discussion destabilizes categories/identities while emphasizing queer of color critiques, queer diasporas and migrations, and the new queer cultural studies. Critical applications of queer theory to personal and social life are emphasized.
