Description: This course will focus on ethnographic modes of writing about sexuality and gender to ask: what is Queer Anthropology? In other words, we will inquire about the possibilities and challenges of Queer Anthropology and ask ourselves how ethnography has been mobilized to know and represent Queer Worlds. We will focus on the intersections of sexuality, gender, race, disability, and generation in Queer World-Making as well as be attentive to cross-cultural variations and what they mean for Queer Studies, Anthropology, and Queer Anthropology. Finally, we will ask: what is the future of Queer Anthropology? Cross-list: ANTH 556.
