Section 012 Literature of Queer Liberation 

Focusing primarily on the period between the Stonewall Rebellion and the AIDS epidemic, this course examines literature’s place within the queer liberation movement, as a tool for effecting change. In particular, students will investigate the affordances of different literary forms and how liberation is connected to the generic conventions of novels, poetry, and manifestos, or, often, the breaking of those conventions.



This course is available for undergraduate credit. Students must possess a high school diploma and must be an adult age 18 or older to participate.
