Description   In an increasingly changing and globalized world,
the intersection of religious and queer studies
is vital for understanding the construction of
identities. This online course is designed to
introduce you to the place given to gender,
sexuality, sexual orientation, the sexual
division of labor, gender role expectations,
race, and ethnicity within world religions'
theo(ideo)/logical discourses. Drawing from an
interdisciplinary approach you will develop a
self-critical perspective on the way that sacred
texts and dogmatic corpus influence the lives and
spiritual practices of queer individuals and
communities. Together we will explore the mutual
constitution of queerness and subjectivity of
religious experiences and their social and
political implications towards the deconstruction
of stereotypes, power dynamics, and
marginalization. [Faculty Consent required;
