  • WGST 3030: Topics in Sexuality
    This course studies alternate presentations of gender in different cultures around the world through history.
  • WGST 4202: Lesbian Studies
    A variable-content course highlighting contributions of women to various fields and disciplines and exploring special problems which may be encountered by women.
  • ENGL 2020: Gay and Lesbian American Literature, Culture, and Identity
    This course is structured thematically around the concept of “Out”—a word that holds various denotations within the gay-and-lesbian community. To begin the semester, students investigate the topic “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” (1930-1970) by (re)considering the works of Lillian Hellman, Tennessee Williams, Patricia Highsmith, Vin Packer, Ann Bannon, Lonnie Coleman, and Mart Crowley—works that paint an often negative picture of “hidden” gay-and-lesbian life between the 1930s and 1960s. This first section is also complemented by a discussion of heterosexism and homophobia, two dangerous constructs that affect LGBTs.
