Course Detail
Course Components:
This course explores the complicated and rich history of Trans*gender identities. What does it mean to be trans? Are trans-identified folks the ultimate rebels or simply shoring up old notions of what it means to be gendered (and sexed) in the world? What theories exist to guide considerations of crossing lines (and dotting I)? How do existing power structures affect the life chances and outcomes of individuals who aren't easily seen or processed by the normative machine? We will attempt to answer these questions and many more as we explore what it means (or might mean, or could mean, or may never mean) to be Trans.
