Objective

This Master's level class will focus on the intersection of race and gender studies in the context of queer African American fiction. Sexuality has been a particularly vexed and complex issue for African Americans, historically, and continues to be articulated in highly charged and politically fraught ways. We will look at a selection of texts by African American authors, including James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Alice Walker and Iceberg Slim.
