Writing Intensive Course Information

Queer theories have become increasingly influential in the behavioral sciences, social sciences and humanities. Like feminist and critical race theories, queer theories have begun to enter the canon and to become essential literacies within several disciplines, including sociology. Similarly gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer identities and standpoints have become increasingly important to the discipline of sociology. In this course we examine the development of queer theories, discuss the controversies and debates within and about these theories, and analyze identity issues related to the broad rubric of social categories related to queer theories and identities.
