Employing the term “queer” as a noun, verb, and adjective, this class will identify queer producers of culture, queer presumably heteronormative cultural artifacts, and critique queer cultural discourse. To queer a poem, a song, a film, an identity, or a social space is to render it non-heteronormative and to contest its assumed straightness. We will do such queering from a scholarly perspective that involves the close reading of cultural texts to understand their content and context for intended and unintended meaning.
