The Pink Book 200708 Courses of Interest to Students in Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender and Queer Studies Fall 2007 UNDERGRADUATE COURSES DIFFICULT DIALOGUES RELIGION AND SEXUALITY Unique 34900 English 314JRe1igious Studies 316K WGS 301 Tues 25 WEL 2312 Instructor Dr Ann Cvetkovich cvetmai1utexasedu As one of four Difficult Dialogues Forum Seminars sponsored by UT s Connexus program and a grant from the Ford Foundation this seminar seeks to explore the tensions and con icts between sexuality and religion in contemporary public life How do these two dimensions of experience and identity often cast as deeply personal matters of choice and or belief play themselves out in public One goal of the course is for students to learn to discuss these issues with respect for differences in religious beliefs and sexual identities We will explore these general issues through attention to particular controversies and case studies The course content will draw significantly from the input of a group of eight participating faculty from across the campus who will develop topics and readings based on their areas of expertise These might include sex education in schools abortion and reproductive rights homosexuality gay marriage and the church the Virgin of Guadalupe role as a national and feminist icon the veil and women s sexuality in Muslim cultures the use of performance and theater such as the work of Anna Deavere Smith to foster public debate and dialogue INTRODUCTION TO WOMEN S AND GENDER STUDIES IN THE FINE ARTS Fine Arts 350 WGS 345 TTh 1100 1230 DFA 2204 Instructor Dr Ann Reynolds reynamai1utexasedu This course will provide an introduction to women s and gender studies in relation to visual performance theatrical and musical culture by focusing on two genres or modes that have been of central interest to feminists in the United States and Europe melodrama and documentary We will begin by reading one of the foundational examples of Us melodrama Harriet Beecher Stowe s Uncle Tom 3 Cabin or Life Among The Lowly followed by a number of essays and works of art that have addressed this book and its impact on the relationship between race and gender in the United States and elsewhere In the second part ofthe course we will look at James Agee and Walker Evans s 1941 documentary study of Southern sharecroppers Let Us Now Praise Famous Men This text and its accompanying images address the boundary between documentary and autobiographical representation We will then consider a number of artists and scholars who have made these boundaries or limits central to their work as feminists Finally we will consider two lms which deal with the same subject the murder of Brandon Teena through the two genres of documentary or melodrama in order to draw some conclusions about the relationships between these two genres and their effectiveness as feminist tools GAYS AND LESBIANS IN AMERICAN SOCIETY WGS 345WGS 393Social Work 360K and SW 393U Wed 830

7 200 PAR 6 Instructor Timothy Turner timtumermailutexasedu This class will explore gay and lesbian literature and culture in the social cultural and political circumstances in which they emerge but also consider how they in uence or transform these circumstances Readings will survey a wide variety of genres touching upon a number of topics including the history of homosexuality race gender class ethnicity religion and sexuality AIDS narratives gay and lesbian political rights movements and the emergence of identity politics and queer consciousness Most of the reading material will come from the 20th century and the course will examine representations of GLBTQ identity in both socalled high and popular culture Students will especially be encouraged to explore the nature of selfrepresentation as it pertains both to the creation of literary texts and other art forms as well as the formation of gay and lesbian identities in social cultural and political contexts Along the way students will also be introduced to some of the basic skills of literary and cultural study including close textual analysis class discussion informal writing researching writing and revising papers and working in groups on peer review and class presentations Since we will be working in a computer classroom some familiarity with basic computing is assumed Students should also be advised that they will be asked to attend and write about at least one GLBTQ event outside of class i i i GRADUATE COURSES FEMINISM AND REPRESENTATION THE 1970s Unique 20580 Art History 386P Fridays 101 ART 3432 Instructor Dr Ann Reynolds reynamailutexasedu This seminar will function both as a historical survey of some of the major feminist texts and works of the 1970s and as a methods course for students interested in working on Us cultural production during the 1960s and 70s in relation to feminist issues and exhibition practices The seminar will focus on three topics important to feminists during the decade theories of sexuality eroticism and feminine sensibility feminism s relation to Marxism and the development of a feminist criticism and three of the master texts being reread during the 1970s the writings of Freud Marx and Engels and Simone de Beauvoir This structure is appropriate because so much feminist critique and art emerged out of the reading collectives which initially defined the feminist community both inside and outside the art world In each section we will discuss a variety of responses to the master texts and then consider these responses in relation to parallel or dependent debates within the art world specifically and the field of visual culture generally Although this course is designed to cover a range of issues the limited focus and selection of texts means that it will not be an exhaustive survey SEXUALITIES AND US CINEMA RadioTelevisionFilm 385KWGS 393 Wed 25pm screening on Monday 5730 Instructor Dr Janet Staiger jstaigerutsccutexasedu This course will consider the history of the representation of sexualities in Us cinema It will look at what was on the mainstream screen the exploitation and quotundergroundquot cinemas and what wasn39t there but what some have thought might be present through the quotinternal shadows of exclusionquot We will cover early censorship and pornography the race issues of the teens and twenties for African Americans and Asians homosexual subtexts formulaic representations of sexuality and coupling postwar sexual liberation politics and its effects the intellectualization and mass distribution of porn and continuing issues of representing sexualities The focus will not be on representations of sex and gender but on licit and illicit sexualities although the former will invariably be part of the latter The focus will be on the social and political context the text and its reception HOMOEROTICS OF EMPIRE English 397M MW 5630 MEZ 1104 Instructor Dr Neville Hoad nhoadmailutexasedu No description available Spring 2008 UNDERGRADUATE COURSES GENDER SEXUALITY AND MIGRATION English 370W WGS 345 Instructor Dr Ann Cvetkovich cvetmailutexasedu The history and culture of the United States and the larger Americas have been profoundly shaped by migrations including colonization by European peoples the African diaspora forced by slavery the shifting and unstable border between the Us and Mexico the arrival through Ellis Island of Eastern and Southern Europeans the long and multiple histories of immigrants from Asia the movement of gays and lesbians to urban centers and the arrival of refugees from war and genocide Although migration is sometimes represented as a threat to the integrity of the nation it is in fact at the center of it We will explore the impact of this history by reading contemporary literature mostly by women with particular attention to how migration is shaped by gender and sexuality We will consider how literature with its attention to the relation between personal and historical experience provides an especially valuable document of migration and intervenes in public discourse about it The course will also provide students with an opportunity to re ect critically on the their own national identities as residents and in some cases citizens ofthe US what does it mean and what can it mean to be American GRADUATE COURSES THEORY IN ACTION A workshop for graduate students GRS 390 WGS 393 Led by Dr Lisa Moore llmoremailutexasedu Who am I and what is my work in the world What do I most want to learn This semester we will explore these fundamental questions so often shoved to the back of our minds by the demands of graduate school This class will be very different from the usual graduate seminar A commitment to process as well as to the class itself as an intellectual political and affective community is the major requirement To be successful in this class students must plan to attend every class meeting complete all assignments on time and show up ready to be honest think hard and speak from their deepest truths Through a series of listening writing and performance workshops students will develop a community engagement project that connects their reasons for being in the academy with their deepest values Class assignments include planning a quotClassroom as Communityquot Event in which the class visits the site of your project to encounter the theory and practice the teaching and learning that happens there The semester will culminate in a quotTheory in Action Community Symposiumquot at the Center for African and AfricanAmerican Studies There will be an exhibition of our projects in at the Center that day as well as a public performanceconference about our work during which community members involved or affected by these projects will be invited to speak This course is affiliated with The Austin Project and with the LGBTQSexualities Research Cluster of the Women s and Gender Studies Program An Associate Professor of English and Women s and Gender Studies Lisa Moore is a member of The Austin Project sponsored by the Center for African and AfricanAmerican Studies at UTAustin There several short writing assignments but there are no textbooks for this course The only readings will be those brought in by students for weeks 23 GENEALOGIES OF BLACK LESBIAN TRANS AND GAY STUDIES

AROUND CAMPUS FALL 2007 SPRING 2008 RHE 309K Unique 46045 TTH 111230 FAC 10 Instructor Megan Little meganlittlemailutexasedu Students have been known to complain that rhetoric has nothing to do with

meetings or functions and interview activist group members From these activities each group member will produce one formal 4 to 6 page analytical paper Groups will be tasked with coordinating their paper topics so that together they form a comprehensive packet that examines debates surrounding the organization from multiple perspectives In the nal unit students continue working with their activist organization this time collaborating on a persuasive document to be used by the organization In addition to this collaborative document students will produce a group report for the class and a re ective essay of 3 to 5 pages CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN S FICTION FALL 2007 African and AfAm Studies 374FEnglish 376M MWF l2 PAR 208 Instructor Matt Richardson
