Lesbian and Gay Studies

The following courses can be taken as part of the queer studies concentration in the women, gender, and sexuality major; as a complement to the student’s major; or as the core of a self-designed major in lesbian and gay studies.

These courses in lesbian and gay studies bear on the formation of gender and sexual identities; lesbian, gay, and transgender subcultures and their histories and politics; non-normative masculinities and femininities; the relationship between sex, gender, and sexuality; the institutional regulation of gender and sexuality; and mass-cultural representations of non-normative genders and sexualities.
