Credit Hours:

Overview of the presentation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered characters in theatre, film, and television. Through readings of theoretical texts and dramatic scripts and through viewings of films and theatre productions, students will examine the social, historical, artistic, and political context in which queer performance has been created and the manner in which the queer character has been presented in dramatic forms from prehistoric ritual drama to the present day sitcom.

Not offered on a regular basis.
