AMCS 3601 - Trans Studies

Description
Trans* Studies is an interdisciplinary course that was previously named Transgender Studies. The new course title represents the development of the field and the identity in U.S. culture. In this course students will engage with the following questions: When and why did the category gender emerge? What is the relationship between sex, sexuality and gender? How have the fields of Medicine and Psychology dealt with gender? How have approaches to "gender dysphoria" changed over time? Why is LGBT grouped together as a social movement? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this grouping? What are the legal obstacles faced by people who resist normative gender categories? What legal obstacles are faced by people who transition from one sex to another? To what extent do U.S. citizens have autonomy over defining their gender -or- sex? How are trans people represented in fiction? What does it mean to apply transgender theory to interpret fictional accounts of trans? Prerequisite L77 100B Intro to Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
