This course also surveys the making of modern understandings of LGBTQ+ identities in the last one hundred years, and the implications of this history for broader understandings of gender and sexuality within a range of formations, from politics to pop culture. Particular attention will be paid to differences of race, class, ability, generation, and nation within LGBTQ+ communities.
