Queer North America


About the Course:

Introduces upper-division undergraduates to some of the main themes and topics in queer history from the seventeenth through to the late twentieth century across North America. The course is organized both chronologically and thematically. It may include discussions of sex, law, and religion, sex, science, and colonialism, sex, immigration, and urbanization, and sex, love, and resistance from perspectives that highlight those who sought to maintain heterosexual hegemony and those who lived lives that were deemed a threat to the sexual order of North America.


Upper division standing.
