CHLT 160 CH -Queering (Im)Migration: LGBTI & Gender Nonconforming Migration from Central America


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course will interrogate the historical and contemporary relationship between sexuality, gender and migration. The recent press and political backlash on Central American immigrant children, their mothers and Transgender, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Intersex individuals at the border often elide the horrific conditions they are experiencing in detention in the U.S. and on the migration trail through Mexico. The class is an interdisciplinary intervention into various fields to draw connections between Chicanx, Latinx, Central American studies and queer studies on (im)migration. This class aims to utilize both feminist theory and methodology as well as popular education methodology to analyze migration and conduct participant observation research and oral histories of affected individuals.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
