Queer History w/Katie (9th/10th, Fall)
In this course, we will examine queer history across different civilizations and time periods, including Ancient Greece, the Renaissance, and the mid-20th century United States. Students will analyze the ways in which queer individuals have challenged societal norms and contributed to cultural, artistic, and intellectual advancements. We will study key moments in LGBTQ+ activism, including the Stonewall Riots, the fight for marriage equality, and the current struggles for transgender rights. Through engaging discussions, readings, and research projects, students will develop a nuanced perspective on queer history and its relevance to our world today.
