General Education Course: Humanities-English Literature, Global and Cultural Awareness
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 - English Composition I .
LGBT Literature surveys the imaginative writing that considers same-sex relationships and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender themes from the classical period to the present, with a particular emphasis on 20th and 21st century texts. By including texts that represent a broad span of human history and multicultural contexts, students will gain insight into the ways in which constructions of gender and sexuality have developed over time and will understand the ways in which shifting cultural attitudes toward homosexuality have impacted the production and reception of literature dealing with same-sex desire and/or LGBT individuals and communities.
