Queer New York

Fall 2018

Taught By: Ricardo Montez

Section: A

CRN: 4741

Credits: 3

This course traverses the geography of New York City, exploring queer life from the 1960s to the present. Through engagement with literature, performance, and film, students look at experiments in the production of queer art and culture. From Jack Smith's trash aesthetics to Dynasty Handbag's performance of abjection, queer art practice has transformed the landscape of New York City and fueled the development of vibrant underground communities. In addition to examining queer historical landmarks such as the Chelsea Hotel, CBGB, and the Pyramid Club, students consider the ephemeral nature of queer subcultures and investigate multiple aesthetic models for queerness, including camp and realness. NCST3300 was formerly listed as NHUM3062. Do not register for this course if you have previously taken NHUM3062; it is the same course and cannot be taken twice for credit.
