SOCI 289 - The Sociology of Queer/LGBT Communities

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
This class approaches the sociological study of queer or LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) people. Topics of discussion include debates over sexual orientation, gay marriage, sexual violence, prostitution, and gender expression/nonconformity. We consider controversial “adult-themed” materials that provoke discussion and critical thinking about what it means to be a non-normative sexual being. The historical time frame of the class is mostly the early 20th century to the 21st century. There is an added transnational dimension with focus on global diasporic sexualities. Long Bui.

Two 75-minute periods.
