1 Feminist Studies 80 Introduction to LGBTQ Studies Fall 2009 • Tuesday/Thursday 12:30-1:45pm • Isla Vista Theater #2 Professor Emily Hobson Email: hobson@femst.ucsb.edu Department Office: 805-893-4330* Office: South Hall 4702 Office Hours: Wednesdays 12:00-2:00pm (and by appointment) Teaching Assistants Janiene Langford: janiene@umail.ucsb.edu Tara VC Gillalba: tvmunson@umail.ucsb.edu *Individual office phones have been temporarily disconnected as a result of the UC budget crisis. Course Description This course provides a conceptual, theoretical, and methodological introduction to LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) Studies. We will consider expressions of sexual and gender diversity across a wide range of communities, placing significant emphasis on the experiences of LGBTQ people of color, and more broadly, how sexuality and gender identity intersect with structures of race, ethnicity, class, and nation. Within this framework, we will explore themes of identity formation and naming; community history, space, and time; normativity, deviance, and outlaw desire; AIDS, representation, and the queer body; nationalism, citizenship, and globalization; and the past, present, and future of queer politics. We will explore the wide range of methods taken up within LGBTQ Studies and identify the theoretical contributions that LGBTQ Studies can offer to scholars across the humanities and social sciences, as well as anyone committed to goals of justice, equality, and collective liberation. This class features two lectures and one discussion section (regular/Honors) each week. Attendance at ALL lectures and sections, and completing ALL required readings, are critical. Full preparation and participation are essential to your success in this class! This course is required for the Minor in LGBTQ Studies and fulfills Area B (Intersectionalities) for the Major/Minor in Feminist Studies. Students interested in the Major or Minor should contact Christina Toy, undergraduate advisor in Feminist Studies: christina@femst.ucsb.edu GauchoSpace Page The Syllabus, Course Assignments, and many other course materials will be posted on the GauchoSpace page, which all enrolled students will be able to access.
