Primary Instructor:

Beginning from the proposition that reading media queerly extends beyond just examining lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender representations, this course interrogates a trove of foundational, current, and future-looking theories and methodologies useful for queering texts as well as our approaches to moving image media. Topics covered will include subtextual, retrospective, and close readings, discursive analysis, queer media historiography, queer production and audience studies, and psychoanalytic, phenomenological, feminist, and transgender approaches to media. The course will focus on issues of power, affect, cross- and dis-identification, fantasy, kinship, imagined communities, counterpublics, and utopias within and organized around film, television, and digital media. Together we will collect and assemble models for launching coalitional, intersectional critiques of screen arts and cultures, in dialogue with the works of Berlant, Cvetkovich, Doty, Foucault, Freud, Gray, Halberstam, Marks, Mayne, Muñoz, Ngai, Sandoval, Spivak, Straayer, Valentine, Villarejo, Warner, White, Williams, and others.
