In this tutorial/reading group, participants read three (relatively) recent books on sexuality and gender. Cover to cover.
This year’s books are to be chosen by the participants. Some possible options are Time Binds, by Elizabeth Freeman; The Feeling of Kinship, by David L. Eng; The Queer Art of Failure, Judith Halberstam; After Sex, Jonathan Goldberg, ed.; Ann Cvetkovich, An Archive of Feelings; John D’Emilio, The World Turned; Amy Villarejo, Lesbian Rule. Other suggestions are very welcome.
Meetings run from early February to late May, and consist of joint discussion. Participants who would like to register the reading group as a 10 EC tutorial write academic reviews about two out of the three books.
If you’d like to participate, mail Murat Aydemir at email@example.com. before January 20.
Instructor: Murat Aydemir | EC: 10 | Entry requirement: some prior experience and/or affinity with queer theory | Time and place: flexible, to be decided.
