Queer Theory Reading Group
Interested in learning more about the multi-faceted discipline of Queer Theory? Check out our Queer Theory Reading Group! This group arose from graduate students in the Spring 2020 Queer Theory course and is now offered in-person and virtually. The students wanted to continue their conversations and explore thinkers they did not review in the course. The readings are eclectic, trying to address various facets within the field. Sometimes theories from other disciplines are brought in, and the readers reflect queerly on them. Contact Evan Marsolek (Theology & WSGS) and Héctor García Chávez (Modern Language & WSGS) for more information to get involved!
