Queer(ing) New York is a Seminar in the City of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. While lgbtq studies has begun to extend itself to look at rural and other non-urban environments, much of the urban still remains to be accounted for, particularly difference within the city. To truly account for our difference, we must queer the city in the way it normalizes groups and spaces, and New York City is the exciting urban environment to begin within. In this Seminar in the City, we will read work that challenges and queers the normalized histories and spaces of lgbtq life. How can we queer the neighborhood, bar, streets, and bodies within it to tell stories of difference?
Participation in the seminar is free and open to the public. The course will involve four classes on Wednesdays, May 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the CUNY Graduate Center. For those not in NYC, you can watch the course online via live streaming and ask your questions via Twitter. Follow this seminar on Twitter at #CLAGSqNY.
