[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 â€œthirdâ€-ness: figures and phenomenaâ€”e.g., queerness, cross-dressing, transgender, transsexuality, intersexualityâ€”that bridge the divide between female/feminine and male/masculine.
