[CRIS 320] Undoing the Dimorphic Paradigm: Gender-Bending, Actual and Imaginative
This advanced-level course problematizes the gender system dominant in Western cultures: heterosexualized sex-gender dimorphism. It focuses on “third”-ness: figures and phenomena—e.g., queerness, cross-dressing, transgender, transsexuality, intersexuality—that bridge the divide between female/feminine and male/masculine.
