This module introduces students to the field of queer studies using a range of material in different media that represents a diversity of LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer / questioning) experience since 1900. Writers and artists over the last century have produced work that has unsettled sex and gender binaries and challenged normative gendered constructions of the body, the family, community, race, and the nation. By engaging with a range of forms and genres we will consider how such work has queered the past and explored alternative futures, laying claim to new possibilities for cultural production, politics, and embodied subjectivity.
