Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Offered by the Department of Critical Race, Gender, and Culture Studies , College of Arts and Sciences , the Sexuality and Queer Studies (Minor) examines familiar issues in gender/sexuality studies (including lesbian, gay, bi and trans studies, masculinities, and feminist theory). But here, the starting point for discussion destabilizes categories/identities while emphasizing queer of color critiques, queer diasporas and migrations, and the new queer cultural studies. Critical applications of queer theory to personal and social life are emphasized.
