Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this course we will engage with some of the most salient issues in the field of LGBTQ activism(s) and look for analytical tools that can help us to understand the sphere of queer-related struggles for emancipation, justice, and equality.

Throughout the course we will follow the developmental trajectory of the LGBTQ movement from its sweeping, revolutionary claims in the 1960s and 1970s to today's homonormativity and homonationalism.

As we do this, we will examine the major challenges posed by indentitarian sexual politics and try to see why it is that painful disagreements arise among people who we would expect to be united around similar political goals.

While we read about and discuss various facets of activist undertakings, we will foster academic-activist interactions and explore what these two modes of engaging with the social world, often perceived as separate, could learn from each other.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
Students should come away with an understanding of the main debates, key concepts and theories of LGBTQ activism. This is a broad and complex field where sexuality, gender, law, nation, race, identity intertwine. After the course, you should ideally know where to start in case you want to pursue these topics further.

Homonormativity and Queer Anticapitalism
