Section Information for Fall 2024

While queer theory and LGBTQ studies provide theoretical and disciplinary framings for understanding gender and sexuality, literacies on these identities and how to work with these communities vary within professions and across contexts and need to be taken into consideration when teaching this content. This course will focus on the incorporation of LGBTQ+ literacies (and definition of) in specific contexts. Contexts discussed in the course but not limited to will be K-12 education, non-profits, medicine, small businesses, museums, higher education, palliative care, and the environment. In addition to course readings, students will also follow a course podcast with community partners who work with LGBTQ+ populations in the contexts studied. Students will also engage in a semester long project in a context relation to their chosen professions/contexts.
