OAKS 150 Queer History and Theory in the United States

Gives students a broad overview of the historical and social construction of queer identities in the United States. Through assigned readings and archival research, students contribute to the project of documenting queer history in the present. Students also examine how queer theory addresses the meanings that U.S. politics and culture have placed on sexual orientation over time.


Enrollment is restricted to junior and senior Oakes College members.
