New course for Fall 2022
Transgender Futures, Transgender Pasts: Introduction to Trans Arts and Cultures
Discover the ways in which transness has developed, mainly in the U.S., throughout the 1950s to the present. While some theoretical reading will be required at the start of the course, the majority of the materials covered throughout the semester will be creative in nature. Through poems, essays, film excerpts, music, and more, this class will investigate several intersections of trans identity – focusing especially on lines of race, class, gender, and ability.
