Queering the Undead

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-0-0

Formerly: WS 333A

Introduces the concept of "queer" by exposing the similarities between Hollywood monsters and marginalized genders, sexes, and sexualities. Focuses on the term "queer" as both activist and theoretical, and the production of such "undead" characters as zombies, werewolves, ghosts and cyborgs as both constructive and problematic to queer concerns.
