CHID 496 C: Queer 101
Wednesdays from 10:30AM-12:20PM in DEN 309

Queer 101 is a 2 credit focus group that we offer each year out of the Q Center through the Comparative History of Ideas Department. It is a credit/no credit discussion based class that focuses on queer/LGBTQ issues through an intersectional and liberatory lens. These topics include history, (trans*) gender, sexuality, disability, class, access, race, age, bodies, normativity, religion, etc. This class is for anyone at any level of engagement and familiarity with this material.

This class is facilitated by undergraduate peers working with the Director of the Q Center and an Undergraduate advisor. The class will typically be discussion focused.


The new “Sexuality and Queer Studies Graduate Certificate” has launched!
