Gender Studies II
We will survey major theoretical approaches to contemporary gender studies, including what Judith Butler has called new gender studies: bodies marked by various crossings (chromosomal sex, gender, sexuality, race, nation) as well as post-queer heterosexual bodies. We will explore competing and often contradictory theories about gender through films, fiction, and gender theory as they articulate trans-sexed, trans-nationalized, and intersexed hybrid bodies. In short, we will explore theory and cultural production that attempts to answer the question: what does gender studies want? Course credit exclusion: AP/EN 2010 6.00.
