AN 228 - Queer Cultures: Sexual and Gender Identities in a Globalizing World


Credits: 3
An exploration of the anthropology of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) identities. Students use conceptual approaches in anthropology and queer studies to understand how people create and express sexual and gender identities in a variety of societies. Case studies focus on same-sex relationships, third gender identities, and queer social justice movements, and we examine how globalization has influenced the meaning of being gay, lesbian, and queer, particularly among people with a non-Western heritage. Students examine cultural patterns and variations of gender expression as well as how sexuality intersects with social identities related to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, class, and nationalism.
Prerequisites: AN 101  or AN 102  and permission of instructor.
