     34736, TTh 5:30 PM-6:50 PM, 115 Ramseyer Hall, Cody Price

What does sex have to do with urban life? Cities have long been sites for the pursuit of self-discovery and sexual freedom. They have also been home to the creation and growth of robust sexual subcultures and communities. The course will be divided into two sections: 1) the sexualities of cities and space, including the formation and examination of gayborhoods and red light districts, and 2) the regulation of sexually oriented businesses within cities. The first part of the course explores fundamental concepts in the study of sexuality and urban space, the impact of culture on urban sexual subcultures, individuals and society at large, and controversies around new forms of sexuality and sex that are emergent in urban life today. The second part of the course will explore and consider sexually-oriented businesses as (1) controversial or perceived offensive land uses and activities, (2) the reasons why the uses are controversial, (3) why courts or legislatures recognize and protect those uses, and (4) the land use and other regulatory tools available to address these uses at the local level.

     29414, TTh 11:10 AM-12:30 PM, 162 Macquigg Lab, Joe Ponce

This course examines 20th and 21st-century U.S. ethnic literatures—particularly, experimental or innovative literatures through the frames of U.S. empire, racialization, and sexuality. In what ways did the practices of U.S. imperialism—including chattel slavery, westward expansion, overseas war and colonization, economic and cultural neocolonialism—produce racialized, colonized, and gendered-sexual subjects? How have African American, American Indian, Arab American, Asian American, and Latinx writers critically and creatively engaged with such practices of racial and sexual subordination and territorial domination? What sorts of literary experiments have they invented and used to claim cultures and communities of survival, renewal, and transformation?

4592: Special Topics in Women in Literature and Culture (BOTH SECTIONS - ELECTIVE CREDIT FOR AU19 ONLY)
     19053, TTh 2:20 PM-3:40 PM, Jennings Hall 140, Jennifer Higginbotham

Sonnets: Women played an influential role in the development of the sonnet. When the Italian poet Petrarch invented the form in the fourteenth century, he started a literary vogue that continues today, and women have been at the forefront of its innovation in the English tradition almost from the start. Initially present only as love objects, women quickly adapted the form to their own poetic voices. The Protestant exile Anne Lock published the first original sonnet sequence in English in 1560, re-purposing the secular love lyric to express religious desire, while women like Elizabeth Carey, Lady Spencer participated in the translation of Petrarch's original Canzoniere in the 1590s. After we dive into the mechanics of what makes a sonnet "a sonnet," we'll apply our knowledge to trace the history of women's sonnets from the sixteenth century to today. Poets may include Lock, Carey, Mary Wroth, Charlotte Smith, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rossetti, Emma Lazarus, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Gwendolyn Brooks, Marilyn Hacker, Marilyn Nelson, Patience Agbabi, Wendy Cope, and Jackie Kay. In addition to gaining mastery of poetic form, students will engage with feminist and queer theory to explore what sonnets help us understand about gender and sexuality, and what gender and sexuality can help us understand about sonnets.

Gender and Empire: The colonization of the New World has usually been told as a "boy story," with pirates or explorers, shipwrecks or frontiers, as its characters and settings. This class asks what would happen if we put girls and women, homes and domestic spaces, at the center of that story instead. Reading literature from and about early America, we will look at the ways sex, gender, and families are inextricably bound up with appetites for expanding an Empire. Beginning by asking why Toni Morrison set her new novel A Mercy among women in colonial America, we will read a novel about Americans caught in the Haitian revolution written by Aaron Burr's secret lover; ask why the first best-selling American novel, The Coquette, was about a sex scandal; and examine the persistent problems of gender and marriage in the work of Nathaniel Hawthorne.

     34806, T 1:50 PM-4:50 PM, 435 Denney Hall, Joe Ponce

This course takes a queer comparative approach to 20th and 21st-century U.S. ethnic literatures. Focusing in particular on formally innovative writing that highlights the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality, we will consider how writers of color have critically and creatively engaged with the legacies and ongoing practices of U.S. colonialism and imperialism. Potential genres and topics include historiographical metafiction, speculative fiction, experimental poetry, and nonlinear autobiography dealing with settler colonialism, slavery, continental and overseas expansion, racialized bodies and desires, and political radicalism.
