Course Name: QSX400 Sexualities and Social Life in Spain (Fall, Spring)

Description: This course introduces students to the interdisciplinary field of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Studies through readings or research, theory, memoir, biography, fiction, media, film, and websites. By the end of this course, students will have a greater appreciation of LGBT experiences, identities, and forms of social life in Spain from the past to the present. Spain is an ideal location for this study. In June 2005, the Spanish government passed a law, granting gays and lesbians the same right to marry and adopt children that heterosexual Spanish citizens enjoy. This course will involve a mix of classroom discussions of readings, film viewing, guest lecturers, and field trips within Madrid. Students will pay a course fee for the overnight field studies. This fee will be billed in Syracuse after registration.

Department: Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender
