How have feminist/(trans)gender/ queer studies transformed the field of anthropology and it approaches to issues of non-normative genders and sexualities across diverse and complex contexts? How have anthropology and its primary method, ethnography, enriched and changed the ways we think of gender, sexuality, and queerness as they intersect with race, class, nation, religion, ability, and other identity categories? In this course, students will be introduced to the subfield of queer anthropology, its recent history, dynamics, and transformations over the last few decades. Emerging from feminist engagements with the field of anthropology, gay and lesbian studies—and later queer studies—has taken on the task of unearthing, documenting and understanding earlier anthropological work on sex, gender, and sexuality, and how these evolved and changed in recent decades. Students will read a variety of queer ethnographic work, covering a wide range of geopolitical and cultural contexts and exploring the lives, cultures, and politics of groups particularly underrepresented in anthropological and social scientific research. The course will be taught in English.
