Gender Studies | Gay Histories/Queer Cultures
G206 | 25466 | Johnson, C


This course examines the social, cultural and political history of
same-sex desire in the United States and abroad.  A particular
emphasis will be placed on the historical emergence of certain
readily-recognizable American sexual subcultures such as the modern
lesbian and gay "movement" or "community." But we will also pay
close attention to the ways that social and cultural formations like
race, class, gender and nationality interrupt and embellish any
linear narrative of lesbian and gay history as such.
