WG397 Queer of Color Critique
Four credit hours. U. Huber
Critique is a practice of radical questioning for those who wish to resist and change deeply entrenched forms of injustice. This is theory as insubordination, an art of interfering with established relations of power. The course introduces critique as it emerged in the western tradition, and as it has been taken up by diverse scholars and activists attending to the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality in the context of capitalism and imperialism. We will read from the work of queer of color critique in order to apprehend and practice other, sometimes dissident, ways of being, doing and thinking in common. Students will develop a critical vocabulary that will help them ask precise and thoughtful questions about broad structures of violence and injustice. Prerequisite: Any W1 course.
