An Intersectional Study of LGBTQI2+ Identities, Culture, Art, History, and Society

Through the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Behavioral Sciences, the LGBT Studies department focuses on the intersections of sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, ethnicity, socio-economics, global location, religion, and ability. Through the interdisciplinary lenses of queer theory, trans theory, theories of race and ethnicity, feminist theory, and the study of comparative social justice and political movements, our courses examine the ways that we currently understand and have historically understood various constructions of sexuality, gender identity and behavior depending upon historic time and global location.
