LESBIAN STUDIES. This mini-course will be held in the last seven weeks of the Fall Term, 1990. The course will meet in the Women's Studies Program Conference Room (238A) in the West Engineering Building. WS 110 will be a broad introduction to the field of lesbian studies. The class will discuss the following topics: lesbian history, lesbian feminist thought, coming out, contemporary lesbian culture, issues of racism and classism within the lesbian community, sexuality, and future visions.
