Hi there! I know this isn't a conventional course, but if you're here, something drew you to it, so I welcome you!
We'll go through key historical developments of queer movements, learn multi-dimensional frameworks to study queerness, get exposure to a wide array of sources focusing on queer voices and visibility, and have discussions in a safe space about queer history and its modern implications to ultimately gain background knowledge necessary to have conversations about topics that are still stigmatized, excluded, erased, or ignored today.
You can expect to participate in a lot of different activities to learn (maybe even about yourself!) and engage with others. I won't ever lecture for the whole time--I want to incorporate time for us to talk about what we learn; that's the point of this course! :)
My most relevant experience is an internship I did studying gender & sexuality this past year, and honors history courses in school that covered related topics. Otherwise, this is just a general passion of mine and something I am constantly researching and learning more about in my free time!
✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY
You are free to attend/skip whichever sessions you want :) Come to any session you're interested in, but I also suggest you come to sessions you might not be interested in at first because you'll learn something new! I will definitely incorporate breaks so no worries if the hour time slot seems a bit daunting!
