Sex, Race, and Power

This course introduces students to the multiplicity of ideas at the intersections of biological sexes, racialized and sexual identities, variously marked bodies, and gendered expressions, as well as the power embedded in their various representations in popular culture. We consider various strands of feminism, divergent positions among queer theorists, and arguments drawn from other identity based fields to both survey and compare several inevitably conflicting perspectives on sex and power in U.S. contexts.
