Section Information for Fall 2018

This course will read works by Shakespeare, Lyly, Marlowe, Donne and other early modern poets and playwrights in conversation with work in queer studies by Bersani, Butler, Dinshaw, Edelman, Freccero, Foucault, Halberstam, Halperin, Masten, Muñoz, Puar, Sanchez and Traub, among others. We shall also explore queer approaches to race, empire, religion, historiography, philology and politics, and ask how early modern literary texts both respond to and re-imagine these critical intersections.
