This course will be a survey of U.S. narrative and documentary films featuring LGBTQ+ themes from the 1940s through the present.  We will utilize critical race, feminist, queer and trans theories to analyze these films and place them in a historical, socio-cultural and political context.  Attention will be paid to intersecting identities such as ethnicity, class, dis/ability, age, weight/appearance and religion to gain a complex understanding of the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community and the struggles and issues they have faced in the past 80 years, including: coming out and coming of age; identity politics and LGBTQ+ activisms; historical and contemporary discrimination; race and racism; queering the film canon; and sexual expression.  Work for the course will include readings, film screenings, discussion posts, a midterm essay, the production of a class-wide zine and a final research essay on the queer/trans film(s) of the student’s choosing.

WS 505 Sustainability and Spirituality

Course Description: In this critical-thinking, dialogue-based class, we will look at the relationship between religion, spirituality, ecology and sustainability. In what ways is  our ecological crisis related to our cultural, social, moral and religious values? Can faith traditions and indigenous wisdom provide knowledge and guidance? How can we become empowered eco-citizens to be able to hope and act for change? In this course of both theory ( substantial readings) and praxis, we will learn the fundamental importance of self-care and community, as well as tools for transformation. How can we restore balance to our lives and to our home, the earth?  We will welcome spiritual teachers from diverse wisdom traditions into our class to facilitate these discussions and guide us in practices and rituals.

Additional Course Details: 

In this class we will examine fashion and the fashion industry through a feminist lens within historical and contemporary, local and global contexts. We will be investigating the effects of the dictates and business of fashion upon people’s lives and delving into questions such as: how does fashion affect our understandings of gender, race and sexuality? What are the messages we receive from visual culture and the media with which we interact constantly? How are sexism, racism, weightism, ableism etc. embedded in these messages and in the industry? We will also examine the development of the industry historically. What have been and what are currently the sites, situations and working conditions from which garments are produced? What are the impacts on people, animals and the environment that the industry has had over time? This course is designed to give students the knowledge and skills to enable engagement with the fashion industry from an active, inquiring and critical position. To facilitate this, we will be working within a very interdisciplinary framework, using a variety of written and visual texts.
