Special Topics course for fall 2023- Jotería Studies: Queer Gender and Sexuality in the Américas

WGSS is excited to announce a new special topics course for this Fall! WGSS 490: Jotería Studies: Queer Gender and Sexuality in the Américas will be taught by Dr. Stacy Macias. This course explores the emergent and dynamic interdisciplinary field of jotería studies in which “brown” racialized sexualities and genders serve as both the primary subjects of analysis and main methods of reading. We’ll consider jotería studies genealogies and future configurations in relation to Chicana/o/x-Latina/o/x Studies, ethnic studies, and queer and trans studies. Through an intersectional lens, we’ll examine jotería studies as a critical cultural, political, and intellectual formation in visual art, literature, photography, performance, testimonial, essay, film, and ephemera.

This course counts as an elective for the WGSS major, minor, and Queer Studies minor! If you have any questions, please reach out to Dr. Stacy Macias at stacy.macias@csulb.edu.
