Section: A

CRN: 3061

Credits: 3

The politics of visibility within contemporary queer culture remains unstable throughout the world. This course reviews the history of transgressive practices within queer photography and film from the 19th century to the present. Topics include documentary strategies within the genre of queer photography, work of queer identified photographic artists, lesbian and gay semiotics and signifiers as well as the role photography has played within gay rights and AIDS activism. Key readings deepen students comprehension of the political and cultural concerns present globally within LGBTQ communities. Students create individual and/or collaborative work in response to course topics.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students, juniors and seniors only. Some seats have been reserved for Bachelor of Photography students.
