Queer Identity and Popular Culture

In this course, we will explore queerness as identity, practice, theory, & politics, all through the lens of popular culture.Our approach will be grounded in theories, methods & texts of communication & media studies, thus it will serve as a complement to other queer theory & culture courses offered across the university.Readings will include both theoretical texts & case studies both historical & contemporary.Students will complete the course with a critical understanding of what it means to be & "do" queer in contemporary culture.Students will also be equipped to bring queer analytical tools to their everyday & professional encounters with popular culture.
