Queer of Color Theory

Instructor: La Fountain-Stokes,Lawrence M; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 1 — 4

This graduate seminar (also open to qualified advanced undergraduate students) will focus on literary, cultural, and performance theory of queer people of color in the U.S., with some discussion of social science approaches (ethnography, migration studies, sociological critique) and of international perspectives. We will be discussing queer theory in a comparative ethnic studies framework, and in a sense carrying out a "queer of color critique," as Rod Ferguson has termed it. This will entail paying especially close attention to the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, and how queer of color critics have deployed these analytical lenses to understand the experiences and cultural productions of Latinas/os, African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Arab Americans in the U.S., as well as of global populations. Readings will include articles, books, anthologies, and special issues of journals. Some of the authors to be discussed are Gloria Anzaldúa, Cherríe Moraga, Audre Lorde, E. Patrick Johnson, José Quiroga, José Esteban Muñoz, Juana María Rodríguez, Licia Fiol Matta, Alicia Arrizón, Gayatri Gopinath, Martin F. Manalansan IV, David Eng, Craig Womack, Jasbir K. Puar, and Nadine Naber. Please contact professor for more information, including list of possible readings .

ROMLANG 680 — Perspectives on Contemporary Literary Theory
Section 001, SEM

Instructor: La Fountain-Stokes,Lawrence M; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

The status of theory, the state theory is in, Estates General of theory, theory as a state of mind — these are some of the notions toward which this title gestures, and which we will try to explore in this seminar. One central goal will be to look at the situation and problems of theory in the humanities today in a way that can meet the needs of graduate students not yet too familiar or comfortable with the major theoretical developments of the last forty years. The seminar might also be called "theory out of bounds" or "theory out of time," since it will encourage reflection on, and searches for, texts that do theoretical work without belonging to the theoretical genre, or that speak to the present without being necessarily recent. Students will be encouraged to choose relevant works and examples from their own fields, relating them to the themes and goals of the seminar.

Advisory Prerequisite: Graduate standing.

ROMLANG 681 — Introduction to Graduate Study
Section 001, SEM

Instructor: Hayes,Jarrod L; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

This course introduces incoming students to graduate study: to the field of literary/cultural studies and its practices, to the ethos of this department, to the nuts and bolts of writing and research. We will also address the big questions: What motivates our intellectual work? What impact can it have on our world? What is our position as scholars and teachers in relation to the larger society? Ultimately, the course's goal is to think critically and creatively about the field of literary and cultural studies today. Readings are selected to foster discussion of these questions. Faculty visits are included in the course. (Taught in English, required for all entering graduate students in RLL, open to other RLL graduate students as well.)

Advisory Prerequisite: Graduate standing (required of all first year RLL Graduate students).
